Off-Campus Database Access

Most (but not all) library databases are available off-campus. To use library databases, patrons must either use a computer on the UCM campus or enter their UCM network username and password.  UCM student username and password formats are described below

Username = three initials of name + last 4 digits of Student 700 number, + 0

Example: abc12340

Students with no middle initial are assigned an "x"

Example: axc12340

Note: Some returning students may need to use the last four digits from their Social Security Number instead of their 700 number. 

Password = your selected network password.

This initial default password must be changed to a personally selected password prior to accessing anylibrary databases. Your password can be changed via the "Network Password Change" tab in MyCentral.

Can't Get to Login Screen?

You're most likely behind a firewall that blocks the ports needed to use the proxy server. This is very common in public K-12 schools. In order to use library resources, the network administrator will need to open up ports 2048 through 2648.
