Off-Campus (Proxy Server) and Library Account Access: Instructions

Off-Campus (Proxy Server Access Instructions

Single Sign On

Off-campus access to subscription databases is limited to currently enrolled students and active faculty and staff. 

The Library has implemented single sign-on  (SSO) of its subscription databases and online catalog. This means that links to subscription content will ask for your UNO email address and password followed by the multi-factor authentication.

Always start from the library homepage to access the databases from off campus. From the Library homepage click on the databases tab. From this tab click through to the database you need to search.


Non-UNO Library Account Access Instructions

Library patrons who are not active UNO faculty, staff, or students can access their library account using their Special Borrower ID plus their library PIN.

If you have forgotten or have never had a PIN, please click on the RESET MY PIN link.

Off-campus access to subscription databases and electronic resources is restricted to currently enrolled students and actively employed faculty and staff of the University of New Orleans. The public is welcome to access these resources (with some exclusions) from the visitor computers in the Learning Commons on the first floor.


Click the RESET MY PIN link and then enter your 7-digit Special Borrower ID number + 00 (example: 123456700). A reset link will be sent to your email account.
