Yes. All of the CCA Libraries' online resources are accessible from off-campus. If you click a link, you should be prompted to login with your CCA account to confirm that you're allowed access. This happens automatically if you're using the CCA Libraries Search on the Libraries home page or if you have selected a resource off the Libraries' A-Z List. However, if you go to one of our resources via Google or without using the Libraries' website, it will have no way of knowing you're a CCA student and may ask you to pay money to access articles or media. Just make sure you're using the Libraries' website and you will be OK.

For instance:

wrong => doing a Google search for "JSTOR" and then searching the academic database

right => selecting JSTOR off of the A-Z list and signing in with your CCA username
