Most of the electronic resources available in the UCF library are also available from off-campus on your home PC. These electronic resources include approximately 325 databases, 24,000 online journals and more than 590,000 electronic books. However, use of these resources is restricted to currently registered students; therefore, access from off-campus requires authentication.
You can now use your NID and NID password to login via EZProxy. From the UCF Library Databases & Research Guides (http://library.ucf.edu/Databases) web page, choose the database, and the login for you to enter your NID and NID password will open in a new screen. It is still possible to access using your Library ID number (your Library ID number is on your UCF card) and the password is the last 4 digits of your UCFID. For example, if your UCFID is 123456, then your password is 3456.
Wait until you see a message “Successfully logged in”, then from the alphabetical listing of databases, click on the database you want to search. To make sure EZProxy is active, check to see that the URL address contains “ezproxy.net.ucf.edu”.
