Off-Campus Access

Virtually all of Loyola Libraries’ electronic resources, including databases and online journals, can be accessed by current students, faculty and staff from any off campus location via our Flagship proxy server

Loyola alumni do not have access to electronic resources from off campus, but can use them by visiting any physical Loyola Libraries location.

If you are a Loyola University Health Sciences Division student, faculty or staff you may log in to many resources through Flagship, but for Health Science Library restricted resources you must log in at Loyola University Health Sciences Library.

How To Connect

You can access Loyola Libraries’ electronic resources from off campus two ways.

  1. Log in directly to the Flagship proxy server with your Loyola username and password. You will then have the option to continue onto the Libraries’ homepage, the research database list or the Loyola Libraries’ Research Guides.

  1. You can browse our electronic resources from the Libraries’ homepage as usual. Once you click on a database or electronic journal, a Flagship proxy log in screen will appear. After you log in with your Loyola username and password, you will be brought to your selected resource.
