Some of our subscription services (Chronicle of Higher Education and FirstSearch databases) require passwords for both on and off campus access. Login with your email username and password here for the complete list.
Off Campus access to Online Databases:
The EZ Proxy connection gives off campus users access to the Library's network restricted databases. Only Eckerd community members with active Eckerd email accounts can access the network restricted databases. If you do not have an active Eckerd email account or have forgotten your login information, please contact Information Technology Services at 727-864-8318. Currently only enrolled students, faculty, staff, and ASPEC members are eligible for email accounts.
How EZ-Proxy works:
When you try to access a network restricted databases from off campus, a login web page will appear prompting you to enter your email user name (the letters before the @ sign of your email address) and password. Once verified, you may begin searching.
While you are connected to EZ Proxy, the URL will appear, with LexisNexis as an example,as: http://80-web.lexis-nexis.com.cgi.eckerd.edu:5000/universe. Whenever you are in proxy mode, the database URL will be followed by "cgi.eckerd.edu:5000". If you follow a link beyond the database, you can either return to the database with your Back button or return to the library web page and log in again. Closing your browser or prolonged inactivity will terminate the EZ Proxy session.
