Online Library Access & Your Account

Access Online Resources from Anywhere

If you are a current RISD staff member, faculty, or student, your library account also enables you to access the library's electronic subscriptions (such as eBooks and article databases) from off-campus.

There are two ways to access these resources from off-campus: 

1. Install the college's VPN software. VPN bypasses your library account login and streamlines the process of accessing our e-resources. If you use library resources frequently, and are working primarily off-campus, you should consider installing the college's VPN software.

2. Log in to your Library Account with your RISD email credentials.
