Off-Campus Database Access

When you are not on the Mount Saint Mary College campus, you can still log into the library's research databases.

Start at the library’s homepage and select a database from one of the options under the Find Information link, according to your needs.

Once you select a database, you will be prompted for your MSMC username and password. Input them and you will be allowed to access the database. You will be able to access multiple databases with a single log-in.
