Libraries off-campus access switching to Office 365 sign-on Dec. 12

McMaster University Libraries are changing how students, staff and faculty log in to off-campus access when seeking journal articles, ebooks and other licensed content.

Starting Dec. 12, off-campus access will adopt the MS Office 365 single sign-on.

Users will log in with their and password, similar to Office 365, when accessing e-resources while working off campus regardless of McMaster VPN activation.

“This change to how our community accesses electronic resources while off campus improves security and consistency for our users,” said David Kemper, digital experience librarian. “We appreciate everyone’s patience through this transition.”

More information on accessing licensed content can be found on the off-campus access webpage.
