Library Access Off-campus: Remote Access

Welcome to the Houston Cole Library Distance Education information guide. This guide is designed for students, faculty, staff and anyone who is interested to use our library. We are committed to delivering a great experience in supporting your learning,

Remote Access

When accessing the electronic resources off-campus, links to restricted materials on the library website will prompt you for your username and password.  This username and password are the same as your MyJSU account.

If you experience difficulty accessing materials remotely, please check the following possible causes:

  • Check if you can sign into your MyJSU account at
  • Be sure that you are registered or pre-registered. Registered students may access the electronic databases during the semester or session that their classes meet. Pre-registering will not grant you early access to the databases
  • School or office computers are often connected to a larger network of computers through a server. These computers may have a firewall established. You need to contact your computer services personnel to determine if this is the problem
  • Cookies and pop-ups are required by EZproxy. 

Still have problems? No worries, find us from "Library Contacts" box on your right-hand box.
