Accessing Resources Off-Campus

The library's electronic resources, found mainly on Article Finder, are limited to use by King-affiliated faculty, staff, and students. In order to enforce that limitation, you may be prompted to login to our resources when off-site.

To login, simply use the same information that you use to login to portal or Blackboard.

If you have problems logging on, make sure that your credentials work in Blackboard, portal, and your email. Email for help.

Linking to Resources in Online Classes

We strongly encourage you to link to the articles we provide through our database subscriptions in your online classes! Here are some tips:

  • After you find the article, make sure that there is full text available. The librarians focus on purchasing resources that are available in full-text, but that is not always possible.
  • When you link to the article, video, or primary source, you can't use the URL in the browser's address bar! Look for a permalink, embed this, or share feature to capture the correct URL. The correct URL should start with
