Can I access the Library databases from home?

Yes, current students, faculty, and staff of The University of Tulsa have full access to all the library’s online products when not on the TU campus. McFarlin uses a proxy server. Using it, you will be able to search all of the databases to which the library subscribes using any Internet Service Provider.

  • In order for the proxy server to function correctly, you must go through the library’s website or catalog. Bookmarking a database or e-journal in your browser may not work.‚Äč

What about the electronic journals? Can I use them from home?

Yes, but you will need to get to them through the library catalog, the journal list, or one of the library's databases.

  • The library's e-journal collection is available off-campus only to current students, faculty, and staff of The University of Tulsa.

Remember: When you are trying to use a library database off-campus, you will need to log in. You will need to enter your last name and TU ID number.
