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 Winthrop email address (e.g. and Winthrop email password. Please do not include the "mailbox" portion of your email address!
