Help Needed with Off-Campus Access
Additional help can be found at Off-Campus Access Information & Tips, or fill out an Off-Campus Access Problem Report. A staff member will contact you to help resolve the problem within 24 hours (except weekends and holidays).
Note: Remote access to databases and electronic books is available to currently enrolled students, and currently employed faculty, and staff of Southwestern College.
Although the Southwestern College Libraries would like to offer open access to all information resources, license agreements with the publishers of our online databases, e-journals, and e-books require that only current SWC students, faculty, and staff be given access to these resources from off campus locations.
Non-enrolled library patrons can access our research databases and e-resources from computer stations located inside the library building.
