Musselman Library Services and Resources During Campus Closure: Access to Library Resources

Access to Online Resources

Using Library Resources:

  • From off campus, students, faculty, and staff members can access library materials (e.g., articles from e-journals, ebooks, streaming film) through MUSCAT Plus and library databases. When accessing library resources from off campus, users will be prompted to sign in using their campus credentials for authentication.
  • For 24/7 access to primary source materials from Special Collections and College Archives, please visit our GettDigital Collections web page.

Library Tutorials

The following tutorials explain how to find and access different library resources from off campus.

Off-Campus Access

Duo Mobile Two-Factor Authentication

Faculty, staff, and administrators will have to use the Duo Mobile two-factor authentication (2FA) app for the following library services when accessing from off-campus:

  • MUSCAT Plus My Library Card
  • Wall Street Journal account
  • RefWorks (new version using the institutional login option)

For help with Duo 2FA, contact IT at 717-337-7000 or trouble@gettysburg.edu. Library staff are unable to assist with Duo issues. More information about Duo can be found at https://www.gettysburg.edu/offices/information-technology/how-do-i/2fa.

EZProxy Off-Campus Access

Access to the library's subscription databases from off-campus must be authenticated through the EZProxy server. If you are creating links for students to access library resources to include in Moodle, use the link generator to properly construct the links. For help with creating persistent links that will work off-campus, email ezproxy@gettysburg.edu.
