IF YOU ARE OFF CAMPUS

Library databases are also accessible to you off campus.   When off campus,  connect to the Library home page and click on "Off-Campus Users Start Here".  Use your UML email username and email password to connect. You will then be able to use all databases. Your UML email username is your email address and your default password is your UML ISIS number.  If you have problems logging on from off campus , contact the HELP desk  (978-934-HELP [4357]) or send email to help@uml.edu   The library cannot reset UML passwords.
