Off-Campus Access

The HPU Libraries subscribe to numerous online resources. Vendor and publisher licensing restrictions limit access to these databases to current Hawai'i Pacific University students, faculty, and staff. For more specific information, please see the Electronic Database Usage Policies.
The libraries employ a proxy server to enable off-campus access for authorized users.  If you are off-campus and click on a link to a licensed resource, you will be prompted to enter your MyHPU username and password.  Doing so will authenticate your computer/device for this session, and allow you access.
