Accessing electronic resources from home

To access electronic materials from your home you have to be affiliated with Kent State University. Off-campus (or remote) access to the University Libraries’ electronic resources is now provided through a new service known as KSU Proxy. KSU Proxy replaced the KSU VPN  for remote library access. KSU Proxy allows Library users to securely connect to databases, electronic journals,  ebooks, and streaming media services without installing complicated third-party software. When you attempt to access library content from off campus, you’re prompted to enter your FlashLine username and password after which you’re connected.

For more information on connecting from off-campus, please visit the Connect from Off-Campus page.
