Accessing Library Resources from Off Campus
Most (but not all) library databases are available off-campus. To use library databases, patrons must either use a computer on the UCM campus or enter their UCM network username and password. UCM student username and password formats are described below
Username = three initials of name + last 4 digits of Student 700 number, + 0
Students with no middle initial are assigned an "x"
Note: Some returning students may need to use the last four digits from their Social Security Number instead of their 700 number.
Password = your selected network password. The initial default password is your birth date:
Example: 011886 for January 18, 1986
This initial default password must be changed to a personally selected password prior to accessing anylibrary databases. Your password can be changed via the "Network Password Change" tab in MyCentral.

Can't Get to Login Screen?
You're most likely behind a firewall that blocks the ports needed to use the proxy server. This is very common in public K-12 schools. In order to use library resources, the network administrator will need to open up ports 2048 through 2648.
