Clarkson University Off-Campus Login

To access any electronic resources from off-campus, you must LOGIN. If you are at any Clarkson campus, you will not be required to login.

You may be prompted to do this when you try to connect to resources, or you can do it before you search for resources, from the link above.

If the article you need is not available through a Clarkson subscription, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan


KnightCat Delivers!

The Libraries can send in-print material from the Clarkson collection directly to you. Make the request through ILLiad.

Requested materials will be mailed to you via UPS with pre-paid return postage

This service is available only to Clarkson community members working and studying remotely and who do not have a Clarkson campus address in Potsdam.

   Capital District Local Libraries

Many libraries will extend borrowing privileges to outside community. Explore academic libraries in the Capital region to find one near you. You can contact the library directly to learn about use of their resources.

   WorldCat super catalog

We suggest looking locally and at Clarkson's collections first, but if you are still not finding the material you need, you can search libraries worldwide by exploring WorldCat. You can then make an interlibrary loan request through ILLiad (there is a direct link to do this from WorldCat records).

Requested materials will be mailed to you via UPS with pre-paid return postage.

Please note that items obtained from other libraries generally have shorter lending periods than Clarkson Libraries allow. You must also account for shipping/delivery time.
