Off-Site and Remote Access

Off-campus and remote access to the databases is restricted to current SMU students, faculty, and staff.

If you are connecting to the library databases from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your SMU username and password. Alumni may access library databases on-site at the John A. Graziano Library in Oakland.  If you are having difficulties with the library login contact us.
