Off-Campus Access to Licensed Resources

Current students, faculty, and staff may access most of the Library's licensed databases and indexes from off-campus.

Be sure to start your research at the Library website!

  • To access Library Databases and Indexes, as well as Online Journals from off campus, click on the link to the database or journal.
  • Next you should see a login screen that asks for your Kalamazoo College username and password.
  • After entering these, you will be authenticated as a Kalamazoo College student, faculty, or staff member, and you will be forwarded to the database.

If you have trouble accessing a library database from off campus, please contact librarians at or 269-337-7152.

  • Off-campus access works best with Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer. Other browsers may not work with off campus access (AOL or Netscape, for example).
  • Update your browser. The latest version of your browser will work best.
  • If you are having trouble accessing a database, make sure popup windows are enabled.
  • Some databases require you to enable cookies or Java scripting to access them.
  • If you simply cannot access a database from one browser, try a different browser.
  • If you need more help, contact librarians at or 269-337-7152.
