Ask a Librarian


If you have questions about: 

  • finding or purchasing an eBook or streaming video 
  • creating permanent links
  • other library resources 
  • requesting books for pick-up at the circulation desk

Contact your subject specialist librarian. Below is a link to the list of those librarians. 

Issues Accessing Online Materials

Remember - to access materials while you are off-campus, you need to go through an authentication process. See below for more information on those two processes (Library Login will work for most library materials!). If you are still having issues - ask us! We're happy to help. Accessing materials off-campus is a common issue that we answer via chat. 

Library Login

You can access MOST library materials using Library Login without the VPN. Please try to access materials without using the VPN, as there are many people trying to use it at the moment. 

To access most articles, databases, ebooks, and streaming videos, you will need to "log in" to the library to verify your identity. 

If you select a database from the A-Z list or click on an item from the library catalog, you will be directed to this screen. Enter your Marqnet credentials (what you use for Checkmarq). After you input your credentials, you will be directed to the resource you wanted.

If you want to use MarqCat+, you will see a screen like this. Click on the "Hello Guest. Login for Full Access"

This will take you to the library login authentication portal. Fill in your Marquette credentials. Click Submit. It will then direct you back to your original search results page from MarqCat+. 


GlobalProtect VPN login windowSome library resources cannot be accessed from off-campus via the Library Login method. A VPN connection is required for these.

Follow the instructions for downloading the VPN clients on your mobile device (DuoMobile) and your computer (GlobalProtect). Both are needed.

  1. Connect to the GlobalProtect VPN using your MARQNET Username and password
  2. Acknowledge the message received on your mobile device (iPhone, Android, tablet, etc.). Once the message is acknowledged the VPN will connect to Marquette's network.
  3. Go to the Library website and start your research
