Off-Campus Access to the Library

The Carroll Library has a number of resources that are available electronically anywhere you have an internet connection. This includes:

The library's online catalog, PioCat, is available to anyone who wants to search it.

Subscription items like databases, electronic books & journals, encyclopedias, etc., are available to currently registered Carroll students and Carroll faculty & staff only. To access these items, you will need to sign in through our Proxy server. It's very simple- click on a link for one of these items, and you will see the following screen:
JavaScript disabled or chat unavailable.

You will log in using your your Carroll network username and password. This is the same username and password you use to login to the site or to check your e-mail.

If you are having problems with the databases please call the Information Commons desk at (262) 650-4886 or e-mail the Electronic Resources Librarian, Nancy Bennett. If you have forgotten your Carroll password and you have enrolled in the Self-Service Password Reset System, you can reset your password using the following link: If you have not enrolled in our Self-Service Password Reset System, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 262-524-7229 for username and/or password assistance.

Pay attention to the information bar for blocked pop-ups or plug-in notices- often .PDF documents will fail to open because of a pop-up blocker on your browser. The University is currently using Adobe Reader 9.0 for viewing PDFs. If you need this software, please visit

You can also log into your Library Record in PioCat or Mobile PioCat. This is NOT your network name and password, but your first and last name and your campus ID number (six digits or less.)
