Off Campus Access

Authorized TCNJ Users

Authorized TCNJ Users (current students, faculty, or staff members) can access most electronic resources (e.g. Gitenstein Library Catalog and subscription databases) from outside of the library. Note: Some subscription databases can only be accessed from within the library.

Access information can be found on subscription database pages (e.g. EBSCOhost, Lexis-Nexis, JSTOR) on the library web site.

TCNJ Proxy Access

TCNJ proxy access allows authorized users to use subscription databases while connecting through a non-TCNJ Internet Service Provider. When you select one of our subscription databases, you will be asked for your TCNJ e-mail account username and password.

If you don’t know your TCNJ e-mail account information you can access it at, or contact the Information Technology Help Desk at (609) 771-2660, or email the Help Desk at

Troubleshooting Connections To Databases

TCNJ users experiencing problems connecting to databases should consult the tips provided on the Problems Connecting to Databases ? page.
