Library Account Setup and Access Instructions: Remote Log-In

This guide provides information on 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

Whenever you access the library’s paid electronic resources – databases and ebooks  you are sent through an authentication system. You should get prompted to log-in just as if you were signing into your library account or Wingspan (see the screenshots to the right):    

Enter (or select) your Winthrop email address, then your Winthrop password.  You should then be able to access the databases and view or download e-books.  For more information about your library account, see the View/Manage Library Account tab on this guide.
