*A note about off-campus access:

You have access to all of the Pilgrim Library's online resources from the comfort of home! When using a library resource, like Business Source Complete, from home you'll be asked to log in with your name and library card number.

This library card is your student/faculty/staff i.d. card! The barcode number is found underneath the barcode and should start with 80.

If you are having trouble accessing resources please contact the Pilgrim Library and we will troubleshoot the problem.
