Only students, faculty, staff, and ASPEC members in current standing can access library resources from off-campus.  Off-campus access to library resources is not available to alumni due to our licensing agreements with database vendors.  When accessing links on the library website from off-campus, users will need to be logged into their Eckerd Gmail account.  This provides seamless access to Eckerd library resources. 
If you are NOT already logged into your Eckerd gmail account, you will see the following Google login page where you can login. Be sure to include your when logging in:
If you are ALREADY LOGGED IN to your Eckerd gmail account, you should not need to login again when opening a library link. Instead, you may see the following prompt to select one of your gmail accounts. ONLY those with domains will work.  
Choose a gmail account
MULTIPLE GMAIL ACCOUNTS (IMPORTANT): If you are logged into a non-Eckerd Gmail account and click a proxied library link, you will see the following error message from google.  Please log back into via your Eckerd gmail account and try the link again. 
Google error - wrong gmail account
If you continue to have trouble accessing library resources remotely, please contact us via chat, email, phone, or come in to see us.
