Off-Campus Access to Library Resources is Available -- Find out how

Are you planning to work on research projects over Thanksgiving break? Will you be off-campus? Here are some tips from our Librarians:

* Almost all of our databases ( are available anywhere you are doing work. If and when you are asked to log in, most of the time you will input your Kenyon username and password (same as your email account). Duo is also required. 

** If you are ever asked for your name and barcode (e.g. requesting a book from the catalog), simply type your full name (first name and last name) and the bar code which is found on the back of your K-Card (100000+your student id number).

* If you aren't sure which database is best for your project, each academic department has a page with suggested library resources appropriate for all areas of study. See

* If you request any books (from Kenyon, Denison, OhioLINK, etc...) the delivery process will begin while you are away. The books might even be ready for you when you are back on campus. So don't wait to request the books! When the books are ready for you to pick-up, you will receive an email notifying you. The circulation desk is located in Libary B, the middle modular building. 

* If you will be in Ohio, and near an OhioLINK library (, your Kenyon ID will allow for you to check out books at another college's library or have OhioLINK books and some journals delivered to the college library of your choice. Here are the directions on how to request the delivery of materials to another library or how to check out books at another library in the OhioLINK consortia:
