Using library databases from off campus

This first time you click on a link for any resource from the library, whether it's a link in the catalog or to a database, you will be prompted to login to the library's proxy server.

You will recognize the Doane logo on the page; just enter your Doane login credentials on this page and you're in!

You don't need to login at any other time while you have your browser open (e.g., Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). If you get any other login prompts, please contact the library for assistance.
