Requirements for Remote Access
Have status as a currently enrolled/employed student, faculty, or staff member. Due to licensing restrictions required by publishers who produce electronic resources, off-campus access to the databases is limited to authorized users. Only currently enrolled students and/or currently employed staff or faculty of UNLV can access licensed databases from off-campus. Alumni and other NSHE users are not eligible for this privilege.
Possess an activated UNLV ACE account. If you already have an ACE account (the user name will usually be your last name and first initial), there is no need to activate anything at the library, and you will not need a PIN.
- Have Web access and a recent version of Internet Explorer, Firefox version, Google Chrome, or Safari: Some databases only work with certain browsers.
Once you meet all of the requirements simply click on the database you wish to use. You should see a screen asking for your ACE login.
