How can I login to get remote access?

Enter your Redeemer network ID and Password (DASH) when you are prompted.

Why do I need to login?

The library must sign licensing agreements with our online content providers, which require us to ensure that only current members of the Redeemer community use these resources.  Many of our content providers authenticate with Redeemer on-campus ip addresses.  In order to access these databases from off campus, users must login to a proxy server which then acts on behalf of a computer with an on-campus ip address.

You will need your Redeemer (DASH) username and password to access the following from off campus: 

  • links to fulltext in most library databases (EBSCOhost, JSTOR, WorldCat etc)
  • most eBooks & online journals
  • Google Scholar with links to fulltext in Redeemer library databases

Who can access these licensed online resources?

The library must sign licensing agreements with our online content providers, which require us to ensure that only current members of the Redeemer community uses these resources.  We only restrict access when a license agreement requires us to do so. Unfortunately, we cannot provide off-campus access to:

  • community borrowers
  • alumni
  • former faculty or staff
  • students who are not currently enrolled & paying tuition fees
  • Adjunct professors/lecturers who do not have a current teaching contract

How can I get help with database searching?

For self-directed help, look under the Databases tab on the library website.  Or contact a librarian for help.
