Accessing Online Resources from Off Campus

If you are a University of Nevada, Reno student, faculty, or staff person, you can enter your University NetID and password to access online library resources from off campus. If you start from the library website, navigate to what you need and log in with your NetID when prompted. You can also follow these more detailed instructions:

  1. Find the library resource you need, starting from the library homepage. You can also customize Google Scholar to show links to University of Nevada, Reno resources.
  2. Click on the link to get the resource. (This may be a "Full text" link, a PDF button, or the Libraries' "Find It" button.)
  3. When prompted, log in with your NetID.
  4. You will then be passed through to the resource you want. You will usually have to log in only once per web session.

Note: There is some content in OneSearch that, for off-campus users, will only appear if you are logged in. Web of Science and its citation counts is one example of this.

Not Sure What Your NetID Is?

University of Nevada, Reno users must initially activate their NetIDs. You do not need to activate it again for off-campus access. Visit the University's NetID help page to activate your NetID, change your password, or get help. The Computing Help Desk can be reached at (775) 682-5000.
