Accessing library databases from off-campus works best with Internet Explorer.

When logging-in to use the library databases, a pop-up window will prompt you for your Username and Password.

  1. First, try your StarID and password to access the library databases from off-campus.
  2. If number 1 doesn’t work, try your LSC Student ID card. Your LSC Student ID card is also your Library Card. To access the databases, look at the back of your ID card and locate the 14-digit number. This is your Library Barcode. If necessary, you may fill out a Request Form to get your barcode.
  3. You should now be in the library databases.

Problems with logging-in? Call 218-733-5912 or toll-free, 1-800-432-2884.
Things to try:

  • Type everything carefully. Your barcode is 14 digits beginning with 21276…
  • Proxy access will not work if you try to access the sites from a location with a institutional firewall (such as from your place of employment). The product will work on your home computer if you use a personal firewall product (i.e. MacAfee or Symantec), but you may have to change the security level.
  • You must be a currently enrolled student at Lake Superior College and must have an active library account. If you have any enrollment or library holds on your records your account may be temporarily inactive. Please call the library main number if necessary.
