Library Resources for SUPA Instructors & Students: Accessing Library Resources

Off-campus access to Electronic Resources

Note: You will need your SU I.D. number in order to access  research databases,  e-journals, and e-books remotely.

Visit https://library.syr.edu and navigate the web site as usual. When you click on a resource that requires authentication, you will be automatically prompted to authenticate as a valid user through a process called EZ Proxy.

When prompted, please enter the 10 digit SUID number (without spaces) as the NetID and enter your last name (all lowercase) as the password. SPECIAL NOTE: Your ID number may be only 9 digits long. If this is the case, add a zero to the end of it before you submit the information.

Once authenticated, you will be automatically transferred to the resource you selected.

If you are having trouble authenticating, call Library Circulation at (315) 443-5727 or email circhelp@syr.edu to verify how your last name appears in our database.
