Accessing the library from off campus
Off-campus access to Library indexes and journals is available for MSU students, faculty, and staff only. When you try to use an index or journal from the MSU Libraries' website from off campus, you will be prompted to log in to our proxy server.
If you are a registered student or an MSU employee, we automatically create an off-campus (proxy) account for you. There is no need to reregister. When you access library databases or journals from your location, you will be prompted for your username and password - you can use your Banner ID number and password, your D2L username and password, or your NetID username and password (to sync all these, to to http://password.montana.edu/). Simply enter them on the form and click the login button.
For more information, see our proxy FAQ's.
Use the library's interlibrary loan service ILLiad to request articles in journals to which we don't subscribe, to get copies of articles from journals in our print collection, to request copies of book chapters or pages from reference books, and to request books in the library's collection. Scanned copies willl be made available to you electronically in ILLiad. Books will be mailed to you at no cost but you will be responsible for the cost of shipping the item(s) back.
