Using the Library: Off Campus Access

Off Campus Access

Students, faculty, and staff can access Odum Library's databases and online resources from off-campus. There are several ways to authenticate (sign-in) and get to the databases and online resources. 


If you are using an on-campus computer you will be able to get into the databases and online resources without being asked for a password. If you are asked for an Anywhere Access login, this is the same as your BlazeVIEW username and password. If you are asked for the GALILEO password, you can get it from your MyVSU portal or library GIL account (see below).
