Accessing Resources from Off Campus
Rhodes maintains a relay server that enables students and faculty to access online resources (databases, e-books, and electronic journals) from off-campus.
Most links to the online resources on our website include a prefix that routes the traffic through our relay server.
If you are off-campus, the first time in your user session that you click on such a link, you will be prompted for your Rhodes network username and password. Once you are authenticated, you will be able to use the electronic resource just as if you were on-campus.
You must go through the Barret Library website to access our electronic resources because we have made a special effort to ensure that our links accommodate off-campus users. Links on pages other than those on the Barret website may result in an unauthorized user error or you may be asked for a database-specific username and password.
If you continue to have problems accessing the resource, Ask Us!
