Off Campus Access
to Library Subscription Databases




Who May Use Off Campus Access

Off-campus access to most of the resources listed on the Databases and Journals and Databases by Subject webpages is restricted to the currently registered students, faculty, and staff of Charleston Southern University because of licensing and subscription agreements with the database or index providers. Resources marked with free are unrestricted and available to anyone. Alumni and non-students are welcome to visit the CSU Library in person to use the online databases.
