On-campus access to most databases is available: (1) through the above links, (2) by searching the Research Databases List from the OSU Library homepage, or (3) by going directly to the database website.
Off-campus access to most databases can be achieved by going directly through the Libraries' catalog (which will prompt you for authentication) or using one of the other routes for off-campus access. Additionally, most database suppliers permit access directly from their site with OSU authentication. If OSU holds a subscription to a database and if the supplier provides direct access, proxy authentication can be achieved by inserting http://proxy.lib.ohio-state.edu/login?url= before the provider’s URL.
Example: For direct off-campus access to IEEE Xplore, place the following in your browser’s address bar: http://proxy.lib.ohio-state.edu/login?url=http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/Xplore/guesthome.jsp
