Connecting Off Campus
Subscription Databases and Indexes
When you click on a subscription database from off campus you will be asked to supply your user name and password. Enter the same user name and password that you use for your other St. Mary's accounts-e-mail, WebTools, Blackboard, etc. If you have access problems call Academic Computing at (507) 457-7800 or the Reference Desk at (507) 457-1562.
The Fitz Library Catalog (MnPALS)
You will be able to search the Fitz catalog freely off campus, but if you want to place an item on hold, check your borrowing record, or perform other personalized tasks you will need to log on. The fourteen digit bar code on the bottom of your Saint Mary's ID card is your "user name" ( begins with 2350000) and your last name is your "password" (or the first eight letters of your last name if you registered before June 20, 2005).
To order materials from other libraries (books or articles from journals) please use the form on our Interlibrary Loan page. Here you will also find detailed information about the ILL service.
If you have a question about accessing library resources call the Reference Desk at (507) 457-1502 or Ask a Librarian
