Guide to Off-Campus Login Service (Nipissing)
The Library has paid for subscriptions to a large number of E-Resources. If you are using one of the 6 Community Use computers located in the Library, you will be automatically connected to the resource. Otherwise, when you connect to E-Resources (both on and off campus), you will need to follow a few steps to access these resources.
Where do I start?
You must access these databases through the Library's E-Resources page or the Nipissing Search link on our homepage. When you click on the E-Resource of your choice, you will see the login screen. If, for example, you arrive at a subscription resource from a Google search, you will not be recognized as a Nipissing University student, faculty or staff member.
Am I eligible to use the off-campus login service?
Yes, if you are a currently a Nipissing student, faculty, or staff member, and you have a WebAdvisor account. Nipissing University Alumni are not eligible to use E-Resources except from one of the Community Use Computers located in the Harris Learning Library.
What is my user ID and password?
For Nipissing students,
- your WebAdvisor ID is your last name initial, lowercase, plus your 7-digit student number (e.g., Mary Jane Doe would be d0123456)
- If you forget your password, you may reset your password on the WebAdvisor site.
For Nipissing Staff and Faculty,
- your WebAdvisor ID is usually your first name plus one or more letters of your second name (e.g., John Smith could be johns or johnsm)
