Remote Access

New College patrons connect to research databases and ejournals from off campus using USF’s remote access.
When you click Connect From Home, you will log in using your Library ID and password, since you do not have a NetID.  For New College patrons, your library ID is your LIB #, which starts with 211… (don’t worry that USF uses a number that starts with 205 -- your 211… number will work!)  Your password is the month and day of your birth.  Enter MMDD -- e.g. enter 0205 for February 5th. To view a 27 second video explaining these steps, click How do I Connect from Home? .

If you have any difficulties connecting from off-campus, contact the library at 941-487-4305 or
