Accessing Online Resources Off-Campus

In order to comply with licensing agreements and/or copyright law, access to many of Hammermill Library's electronic resources is limited to current students and employees of Mercyhurst University. If you click on a link to one of our databases, electronic journals, or electronic reserves from an off-campus computer, you will be prompted to enter a username and password. Your username and password for accessing library resources are the same as the username and password used for your Mercyhurst email account. Keep in mind that, while your username is always the same, you may have different passwords for your various campus accounts. Be sure you use your email account password.

If you do not know your username and password, more information is available on the Mercyhurst University IT Department web pages:

Username and password information for students

Username and password information for faculty

Username and password information for staff
