Off-Campus Access to Databases

While on campus (in Berry Library, a residence hall, or a courtyard) you will be able to directly access library databases. 

However, when you try to research away from the boundaries of Salem State's campus network, you have to show our system that you are a member of the Salem State community. This is what you do:

Using Databases Off-Campus

  • When prompted, use your Salem State network/wireless network user name & password to log into resources when you're off-campus.
  • Students, use your Navigator login credentials.
  • Faculty, use your Polaris login credentials.
  • If you've forgotten your password, use the "Forgot Password?" links on the Navigator and Polaris login pages.
