Off-Campus Access

The Campbell University Libraries have established a proxy server to provide legitimate Campbell users coming in from other Internet Service Providers (ISPs) access to restricted web-based databases.

Certain Internet resources at Campbell are, for contract and license-related reasons, restricted to clients in the domain. This is true for almost all of the databases listed in Databases or Journals. Faculty, staff, and students who access the Internet through commercial ISPs off-campus are not able to access these restricted databases.

The proxy server allows Campbell faculty, staff, and students to have access to all of our web-based resources regardless of the physical location of the user.

How The Proxy Server Works

When you first try to access a remote database, you will be directed to a login page. Enter your user name and password in the text boxes on the page. After you are authenticated, you then will be directed to the database you have chosen. The login page will appear only once in each session.

How to Login

To log in to the proxy server you need to enter your Blackboard username for your username and your Blackboard password for your password. If you have any questions about your Blackboard account you can contact IT Services Helpdesk at (910) 893-1208 for assistance, or e-mail them at
