Off-Campus Access

Many of the library’s electronic resources (databases and online journals) require a login from off-campus. This is necessary due to licensing restrictions on access. During the login process, current Erskine students, faculty, and staff are able to authenticate their status as eligible users.

Erskine Students, Faculty, and Staff Members: When you attempt off-campus access to one of the library’s electronic resources with restricted access, you will first be taken to a McCain Proxy Login screen.

When you see this screen, enter your Last Name and the number from your Erskine ID or McCain Library Borrower’s Card in the appropriate boxes and click the Login button. Once the system authenticates your status as a current Erskine student, faculty, or staff member, you will be given access to the resource.

If you have an Erskine ID card, use your last name as it appears on the front of your ID and the barcode number that also appears on the front of your card.

If you have a grey McCain Library Borrower’s Card, use the barcode number that appears on the back of your card (the letters E and C followed by five numbers).
