Yes. You can access all of the library's online resources from anywhere, any time. You will be prompted to authenticate as a UM System user when you navigate to research resources from links on the library website. 

When accessing library resources from outside of the United States you will need to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to UMKC. See the VPN instructions
