All SC4 Library online resources are accessible from off campus.
When attempting to access a subscribed resource from the SC4 library website you will need the following:
1. SC4 Portal email address Example: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. SC4 Portal password (same password you use to log into SC4 computers, the SC4 Portal, and your SC4 email).
The login screen should look similar to the image below. Successful login will redirect you to the library resource. The login session is good for the duration of your browser session, but may time out after 30 minutes of inactivity.
SC4 Library's off-campus access is compatible with all major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and is accessible via computer, tablet or mobile device.

Are you using the correct username/password combination?
Be sure to enter your SC4 Portal email address. Your portal username is beginning of your SC4 email address. Students have the email domain @student.sc4.edu.
If you've lost or forgotten your SC4 Portal password, reset your password at https://sc4.edu/password-reset.
Are you a current student or employee?
Only current students, staff, and faculty may access SC4 digital resources from off campus. If you are a student and are not currently registered for any classes, your access is suspended until your next registered term.

Sometimes the cache/cookies can cause access issues. If you are having trouble accessing electronic library resources, try clearing the cache and cookies.
Browser History or Saved Password Issue
Some browsers will store the library’s password - if you can access the SC4 Portal and continue having difficulty logging in to the SC4 library website, clear the browser history.
If you have recently changed your SC4 Portal password, the old password may still be saved in your browser. Check saved passwords for the website: sc4.idm.oclc.org.
