Off-campus access to the library's online resources.

Access to Electronic Resources

Access to certain electronic resources (databases and eBooks) may be restricted to the Missouri Baptist University community (currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff) due to licensing and copyright agreements with vendors and publishers. 

On-Campus Access

If you are using a computer on campus that is connected to the MBU campus network, you will be connected automatically to library electronic resources; no log-in is required. Campus computers are granted automatic access to library electronic resources because they have a MBU IP address. 

Off-Campus Access

You must be a currently enrolled MBU student or a currently employed MBU faculty/staff member to access the library's electronic resources (databases and eBooks) off-campus.

If off-campus, you will be presented with an authentication screen. To log-in, use your first and last name and your MBU student, faculty, staff ID # followed by MBU. 

If you have any questions about accessing the library's electronic resources from off-campus, please call the Learning Center at 314.392.2320, email the library staff at, or utilize our chat service 24/7.
