One of the library‘s most important services is the collection of electronic journals, books and databases we
license and make available for the campus community. These resources can be used both from campus
computers and from computers anywhere, any time, once the user has been ―authenticated‖ as being affiliated
 with the Health Science Center. In January, we are introducing a new way to log in and be authenticated when you are accessing library materials from off-campus.
Beginning January 17, 2010, you will see a new button on the login page when you areaccessing e-journals, books or databases from off-campus. This button will allow you to log in with your UTHSCSA domain account -- the same username and password that you use to loginto your computer on campus, or log into Blackboard, the inside.uthscsa portal, or theKnowledge Center.
If you are affiliated with the Health Science Center and registered with the library but do not have aUTHSCSA domain account, you will still be able to log in as you always have, using your badge number andthe PIN you have configured in the library. If you use the VPN client to access network resources from off 
campus, while you are logged into VPN you will be able to use the library‘s electronic resources without
further log in.
We are hoping the addition of domain account log in will make access to the library’s
electronic resources smoother and easier than ever for our students, faculty and staff.
Inaddition, we are working on making our login pages easier to use on mobile devices, so you can stay currentand informed wherever you are.
