Library Accounts and Off Campus Access

EZproxy for Off Campus Access

EZproxy is used for off campus access to online resources. Use your PassportID  username and password to log in just as you do on the UCDAccess Portal. Exceptions: If you are a University of Colorado Hospital employee, VCF program, retired Anschutz faculty, or CU Anschutz Faculty paid by affiliate, use your ID number as outlined below.

Library Catalog and Discovery (Search HSL)

If looking to renew checked out items or place holds or requests in the Search HSL system, most users will also authenticate via their PassportID username and password.  Some users, such as University of Colorado Hospital Staff, will need to contact the library in order for us to enable access to that system.  If you have any trouble logging in to Search HSL, please contact the Service Desk at 303-724-2152.
