To access our online subscription resources from off campus, you need to authenticate through the Library’s website.

You can do a search in PacificScholar or select Databases, E-Journal Titles, or Books & More and perform a search. You will be asked to log in when you try to access a library resource (such as a database, e-journal, or e-book).


  • Provide your library account details (not your Pacific username and password).
  • If you try searching for an article or resource through Google or Google Scholar without logging in first, the provider cannot recognize you as a student, faculty, or staff and therefore will deny access.
  • Due to license agreements and copyright restrictions, our licensed content may only be accessed by current students, staff and faculty.
