Accessing Databases Off-Campus


The databases on the Inver Hills Library homepage are available 24/7. To logon, use your StarID and password.  Activate your StarID here.


You can also logon using your 14-digit library barcode number, which may be found on the back of your Inver Hills Student or Faculty/Staff ID card or you may have a white library card from Inver Hills. Your barcode begins with the numbers 20202. Your password is your last name.  If you don't have a library barcode number, you will need to stop by the Circulation Desk in the library to get one.

If you're not sure about your account, ask at the Library desk or call 651-450-3625 or email us at


Steps to access library databases:

Please note:

All functions in the databases are the same whether you are on campus or off. Once you are logged into one database, you can go to another database from the Library's homepage during your timed session without re-logging on. Once you log on, you have 8 hours in one session to use the databases.

Problems that may prevent access:
