Reminder: Online Access

  • Library resources require going through CWRU Single Sign-On.
  • The best method is to follow links from the library website.
  • When logged in and a browser window is not closed, access should continue from resource to resource.
  • Remember to close your browser when done.


Need to learn how to use KSL online collections and resources?  Here you'll find helpful text-based instructions, quick videos and interactive tutorials on how to search library collections, as well as guidance for students on how to organize projects and papers using library resources. 

Please make sure also to contact us directly if you have questions or need assistance.  We are happy to help you!

Accessing KSL Resources & Collections from Off Campus

In order to access many of the Libraries' electronic articles, books, media, etc., you need to be authenticated as a CWRU student or employee. 

If you wish to access library collections and services while away from campus, make sure to log into CWRU's Virtual Private Network first before proceeding to the KSL home page.  Please see this page from the CWRU Utech site for more information on how to install and use the CWRU VPN client:
