Off Campus Access

Subscription Databases

As a student (or faculty/staff member) at SCC, you have access to all the library's subscription (fee-based) databases. These databases provide access to articles, e-books, and other information sources that are often not freely available online. To access these databases, you must go through the library's website.

EZ Proxy
EZ Proxy is a server that allows you to access the library's subscription (fee-based) databases from anywhere off-campus. You just need to know your MySolano username and password (the same username/password you use to register for classes). Please note the following:
  • EZproxy may time out after several minutes of inactivity, and you will have to re-log in.
  • EZproxy requires cookies. Please set your browser to accept cookies from

Connecting to the library databases with EZ Proxy should be easy. From off campus, when you click on a library database link, you will be asked to log in using your MySolano log in (username/password). After a successful log in, the database will open.

Having trouble logging in?
  • When MySolano is down, access to the databases will go down.
  • Sometimes you simply need to clear your browser's cookies and search history before you try to log in.
  • If you are using a firewall at home, you may need to configure your firewall settings.

If you continue to experience any problems logging in, please contact us.

Looking for a newspaper, magazine, e-book, or journal article? As an SCC student, you have online access to indexed and full-text articles from reference books, journals, magazines, and newspapers through your Library's database subscriptions.

Use 24/7 e-ref if the chat librarian is out.
