Remote (off-campus) Access

If you are outside the campus, residence halls, or other FGCU network locations, you will be asked to sign on to access journal articles, databases, and e-books, as most are licensed for use by currently active FGCU students, staff, and faculty.

  • When prompted, enter your 14-digit Library ID or your FGCU email address and password. Your Library ID is the 14-digit number that can be found on the front of your FGCU Eagle ID card. The FGCU Eagle ID card serves as your Library card.

  • If you don't have a current Eagle ID, or are a distance learner, please contact the Eagle ID Card Office.

If you require further technical assistance regarding login issues, please contact: 
FGCU Helpdesk: (239) 590-1188 / or the Library Helpdesk: (239) 590-7617 /
