Q: Why can I not access library online resources off-campus?


Students must be currently enrolled in classes in order to access resources from off-campus. For access during break between semesters, you must also be enrolled for the upcoming semester.  If you are not, then your access will end at the close of the current semester.  For example, if you are enrolled in the Fall semester but not Spring, then your access will end at the close of Fall exams.

Friends of the Library cannot access databases from off-campus. You may visit our libraries and use the guest computers to access the databases. You may also visit your public library since public libraries in Georgia often have access to many of the same databases as KSU.  

If you are working on your graduate capstone, thesis, or dissertation and are unable to access library resources during the semester break, please send an email to
