How to Access Electronic Resources

Access to the Library's Licensed Electronic Resources is accomplished through EZProxy. This application verifies the patron D number, and last name against a database of patron files. 

Remote access is easy to use:



Click on the login button. Your authorization will remain in place until you close your browser.

If you are denied access, it might be because:

  • You are not a valid faculty, staff or student registered at Delaware State University Library.
  • You are registered, but there is a discrepancy between our records and your patron ID number.
  • Your privileges are blocked because of unpaid fines or charges for lost materials.
  • You are registered with the Library, but not in a category with privileges to restricted resources (for example local community patrons).
