Library Account Setup and Access Instructions: Remote Log-In

This guide steps you through creating a library account password or resetting it, accessing your library account and managing it, and logging into electronic resources remotely.

If you are a currently enrolled student or a currently employed faculty/staff member at Winthrop University, then you have the ability to access the library's electronic resources from off-campus. However, to do so, you must first create a password for your library account (please see the Create/Reset Password tab in this guide for detailed instructions).

Whenever you are off-campus and you try to access most of the library's databases and e-books, you should get prompted to log-in with your library account username and password (see the screenshot below):

Enter your library account username (first part of your Winthrop email address) and library account password (see the Create/Reset Password tab in this guide). You should then be able to access the databases and view or download e-books.

For any issues with remote access, please contact the Reference Desk at 803/323-4501.
