Using Off-Campus Access for Electronic Books, Articles, Journals, and Databases

Start at the Medical Sciences Library website as you would while on campus. Either search the MSL Catalog for the journal or book you need; or click the database you want to use. When you access the TAMU subscription, a prompt for your NetID and password appears.

Resources you can access off campus:

  • Electronic databases
  • Electronic articles
  • Electronic journals (ejournals)
  • Electronic books (ebooks)

Note:

  • Some electronic resources don't require off campus logins.
  • You do not need to log in to the proxy server before you look for your resource.

If you have trouble accessing an electronic resource, please contact AskMSL@library.tamu.edu or 979-845-7428.

The Medical Sciences Library is always open virtually 24/7/365. You may use this guide to help you access electronic databases, journals, or books. You may contact us anytime at AskMSL@library.tamu.edu for help or to arrange a research consultation.
