Welcome, Shawnee State University Distance Learning students!

You'll be happy to know SSU's Clark Memorial Library has many services and resources available to you as you work on papers and projects for your classes -- even though you may not be near the library building itself.

This guide will provide information on these services and resources. Use the tabs to the left to find out about them.

Also, please know that the librarians and library staff are here to help you! Just let us know what you need and we'll help you.


Accessing Online Resources

Important Note for Off-Campus Access:

For any problems accessing online library resources:

The library’s authentication process for logging in to online databases has moved to single sign-on through ITS. Therefore, if you are signed into Blackboard or MySSU, you will be automatically logged into online library resources.

 If you are unable to log in, you may have an expired single sign-on password. Please fill out an ITS Get Help form with any issues (https://www.shawnee.edu/clark-memorial-library/information-technology-services/documents/it-service-desk-get-help-form#no-back) or visit the ITS Service Desk on the bottom floor of the library. 

For any questions, contact ITS at 740-351-3538.
