Starting on May 5th, 2021 the Gregg-Graniteville Library will move to a new, next generation authentication system. Logging into resources on and off-campus will simply require your U of SC AIken email address and password. For more information, check out our OpenAthens page here.
To access USCA Library databases off-campus, login with your USC Network username and password. This is the same login you use to access Blackboard. Please note that you will use your username and NOT your VIP. To learn more, check out the video to the left. If you are having problems accessing the databases from off-campus, please review the "Troubleshooting Off-Campus Login" box below.
Note: If you are using the USCA VPN to access campus resources off-campus, please turn off your VPN. You will be unable to access library databases with the VPN on.
