Changes to Access UCs Online Library Resources

Due to changes in authentication, the “Off Campus Access” page has been eliminated. You no longer need to log in via the “Off Campus Access” button or page; instead, when accessing library resources via the UCs Library Catalog or website, you will be prompted to authenticate by logging in at that time, not before.

Non-Faculty Employees have access to most but not all resources available at University of Cincinnati Libraries.

Use the link to ‘UC Libraries: Home Page’ on the  Pratt Library home tab under ‘Self-Guided Research OR go directly to:

  1. Click the subject heading you would like to search and then type your topic and/or journal title in the search box and click the “search icon” Figure 1.

  2. Click on the “Affiliates” login tab. Enter your Cincinnati Children’s Hospital ID number on the back of your badge and your last name “lowercase only” and click the LOG IN button. Figure 2
