DIY: Accessing Library Resources from Off Campus

Logging in from Off Campus

Off campus access to the library's databases, eBooks, eJournals and other online subscription resources is restricted to current students, faculty and staff. As a Fitchburg State student, faculty or staff member you are issued a unique Falcon Key username and password from the Technology Department when you teach or enroll in a course/program. Whenever you are prompted to login to the library's databases and subscription resources from off campus, use your Falcon Key to login just as you do for Blackboard.

Don't know your Falcon Key?

Students and faculty can obtain their Falcon Key account information from the Technology Help Desk; you will need to provide them with your Banner ID number.

In an extended campus course/program and haven't received a Banner Student ID number because your paperwork is in progress? Contact Linda LeBlanc (978) 665-3062 or for a temporary guest login to use.

Faculty/Staff Falcon Key:

  • Your username & password are the same as your blackboard/email username. (i.e. "jsmith").

Student Falcon Key:

  • Your username is the same as your blackboard/email username (i.e. "jsmith23").
