Fredonia students, faculty and staff use their eServices username and password to log in via our proxy server from off campus.
When you click on a link to any library database or online journal from off campus, you will be prompted to enter your eServices username and password. This is the same one used to log in to the campus network, FREDapps, FREDmail, etc. Student eServices username generally consist of 2-4 letters of your last name followed by 4 numbers. Faculty and staff usernames generally consist of 2-8 letters of your last name, and possibly your first and/or middle initials.
To find your eServices username and password, log in to Your Connection, then click on the "Personal Information" link and then the "View Your User IDs and Passwords" link. Locate your eServices username and initial password in the table that is displayed.
All major web browsers should be supported (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome). Please note: it is a good idea to use the most recent version of a browser for security reasons.
When logging in from off campus, you should see a screen that looks like this:
If you can access this screen, but keep getting a message saying that your password is incorrect, first verify that you are entering your credentials properly. If these do not work, please contact the ITS Service Center to have your password reset.
Access to most databases and most journals is restricted to members of the State University of New York at Fredonia community. If you are not a current Fredonia student, faculty, or staff member, you will not be able to access these resources. If you have an active account and are still being told that you are "not authorized" or "forbidden," please contact the ITS Service Center at (716) 673-3407 or through FREDquest.
This is a system that the library uses to make sure that students, faculty, and staff are able to access restricted copyrighted resources. We have purchased limited licenses to these databases which allow only members of the university to access them. The proxy server serves as a gatekeeper to these databases and journals so that students, faculty, and staff can access them from off campus.
