Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
When you access Library resources from Off-Campus, you will have to sign in to the Library proxy server. The server masks your home IP address to let the resource know that you are in fact a member of the Downstate Community.
When you click on a link for one of the Library's licensed resources, you will be asked for a user name and password. Your proxy server user name and password are the same as the ones you use to login to your campus email account or your PRIME account.
If you are already in PRIME when you access a Library resource, you will not need to go through the proxy server.
