​Accessing Databases Off Campus

To access Shafer Library resources off campus, type in your UFnet account username & password when you see the UF Resource Authentication page. 

If you cannot log into your UFnet account, you can access Shafer Library's databases by authenticating through OPAL.  You will need to use the 14-digit barcode number on the backside of your UF ID beginning with 40633.


If you are having problems accessing the library's resources, try these following suggestions.

  1. Clear web browser cache and cookies. View instructions for PC or MAC on the ITS helpdesk page.
  2. Try a different browser- Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer.
  3. Corporate networks or work computers may have firewalls preventing access. These locations include hospitals, businesses, schools, and other organizations. Try connecting using your own personal device and home internet.
If you still have problems accessing, report your problem to the library at [email protected] or call 419-434-5880. You may also contact ITS Help at [email protected] or call 419-434-4357.
