Research While Away (RWA) from SDSU
Remote access to library resources, such as article databases, is restricted to current SDSU students, faculty, and staff. Access to the library's online catalog does not require a login, and is freely available.
The library uses the ezproxy system to authenticate that users are affiliated with SDSU. When library resources are accessed from off campus, the ezproxy server will automatically generate a webpage that asks users for their last name, Red ID number, and library pin. Once that information is submitted, the user will be able to access the library resource.
If you do not see a login page (see the photo gallery below for a screen shot) when you click on a library resource from off campus, then it is possible the URL does not contain the required ezproxy information. Correct URLs should contain the string "libproxy.sdsu.edu." Please contact the research services desk for assistance.
