For those that are trying to access databases and ebooks from off-campus, you’ll notice that you get prompted for a username and password. If you’re confused as to why your old credentials aren’t working (last name and Winthrop ID), it’s because this past July we switched to a different computerized library system. The username you have to use now is your Winthrop email username and the password is your library account password, that you have to create for the first time.
If you have not created a library account password since July of 2015, or you did but you’ve forgotten what it is, please use the following guide: Library Account Setup and Access Instructions. It provides detailed instructions and screenshots to aid you in setting up this information.
If you’ve done all this and you still cannot access the library’s resources remotely, please call the reference desk at 803/323-4501.
