Who can access the article and research databases from off campus?

Off campus access to the Library's databases is available only to currently enrolled Normandale students, faculty and staff.


What you need

You will need your StarID and pasword for off-campus access.To find out your StarID or reset your password, go to the StarID self service page.


How to access the article and research databases

Simply click on the Article Databases link on the Library Homepage and select a database from the A-Z list or the databases by category lists. When you click on a database link, you will be prompted to enter your StarID and password. That's it!


Troubleshooting remote access

  • My StarID and password don't work.
    Make sure your StarID and password are correct. Go to the StarID self service website for more information.
  • I keep getting a -page cannot be displayed- or -page cannot be found- error.
    This usually happens when you are trying to access the research databases from your work or another place where they have a firewall that is blocking access to the proxy server.
    If you are trying to access the databases from home, this message can mean that your browser security settings are too high or you have a personal firewall blocking access.
