How to access online library resources remotely

Current DePaul students, faculty and staff can access online library resources anywhere using their BlueKey login credentials.























If you have any issues accessing online resources remotely, see Troubleshooting or contact Ask A Librarian for help.


The library is moving from EZProxy to the OpenAthens for access and authentication to our online resources. OpenAthens provides secure and seamless remote access anywhere via single sign-on with your BlueKey login credentials.

How will the switch to OpenAthens affect you?

  • You will only need to log in once and you will remain logged in for 8 hours. (Unless you switch browsers, clear cookies, or use a new device.)
  • You will be able to log in directly on many publishers' websites without having to go through the library website. See How to log in.
  • You will need to update saved links. Links with the EZproxy prefix ( will continue to work for now, but you will need to update bookmarked links and links in course materials before Autumn Quarter 2024. See Create permanent links.
