Can I use the library's online resources from off-campus?

Most of the library's databases can be used from off-campus, unless the database information notes otherwise. To access resources from off-campus, start from CrossSearch (on the library homepage), our list of databases or the e-journals search. You'll be asked to enter your Holy Cross username and password, after which you will have access to our resources. 

Note: it is very important that you go to online resources via the library's website instead of by direct link (i.e., www.jstor.org). If you go directly to a database site without passing through the library's links first, the database will not recognize you as a Holy Cross subscriber and will not prompt you for your Holy Cross log-in, and you will be unable to access the content.
