Connect from Off Campus

Off-Campus Access to LITS Resources and Services

Stay connected to LITS resources and services while you're travelling off-campus and around the world.

Library Subscription Databases - If you get to these through the E-Resources A-Z page, the proxy server will be activated and you will be directed to enter your MHC login. Once you have logged in, you will have access to the database just as if you were on campus. Note: some universities in other countries block a port that is required by our proxy server. If you have trouble connecting, contact us or try a different internet hot spot.

RefWorks - Refworks can be accessed from off campus, however you will need to be ON CAMPUS or else get a special Group Code from us in order to first set up your Refworks account. Once you have created your account, to logon from off campus, you'll only need your username & password. Please email the Research and Instructional Support (RIS) team if you need the Mount Holyoke group code.  To access RefWorks from anywhere, you will go to, then login to your personal account and use RefWorks as you would on campus.

Research Help - Even though you are off campus, you still have access to research help from Mount Holyoke librarians. Use the Contact Us page to chat, e-mail, or phone.
