You must be an LMU student, faculty, or staff to access the databases remotely.

Starting from the library website ( or an LMU LibGuide, you can search for materials you want to access. Once you click on a library resource like a database or e-book that you would like to access, you will be prompted for your MyLMU username and password, as below. Enter your username the same way you would on MyLMU - i.e. ilion23. 

Log in with your MyLMU information (or for Loyola faculty and staff, your LLS login) to access the resource. If you do not remember your MyLMU information, you can check or reset it on the MyLMU page

If you have problems logging in, please check our Remote Access page for some possible problems. If you have any questions about this process or other issues, you can contact the Information Desk for more help.
