Some library resources, like searching the library catalog for books or requesting items from the Robot, work off campus without logging in. When you are using library subscription resources off campus, you will be prompted to enter your UMKC username and password on UMKC or UM System login page.

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.
