To access certain library resources (like databases and eBooks) from off campus you will need to authenticate yourself using your MySalem username and password. This is the same username and password that you use to access MySalem and Moodle. Enter through the library website, and it will prompt you when you need to authenticate (not all resources require authentication). If you do not know your MySalem username or password, contact the IT Department at (336) 917-5899 or submit a help ticket to helpdesk@salem.edu
