Distance Education Students: Home


Off-campus access to articles, journals and e-books is routed through the campus network. If there is an interruption in the internet service to the University of Lynchburg campus, then access to the library's online resources is also interrupted. We will post notices of scheduled maintenance here. If an unscheduled disruption occurs, we will attempt to post here as well. 

Book Borrowing at Other Colleges & Universities

The library is pleased to announce its participation in the VIVA (Virtual Library of Virginia) Cooperative Borrowing Program.

When visiting at one of the participating libraries at private and public colleges and universities in Virginia, you may check out books from that library by presenting your current LC ID card, and agreeing to follow the borrowing policies of that library.

After reading the book, you may drop it off at the Knight-Capron Library and we will return it for you. Complete information is available at

A New Way to Connect to the Library, Anywhere, Any Time

Lean Library: articles, journals and databases from the Knight-Capron Library, anywhere, any time.

Old Style: Connecting to online resources from off-campus.

Start at the library's website:

  • Select a database to use
  • When prompted enter your campus network username and password, just as you would to log-in to a computer on campus.

As long as you keep your web browser open, you should be able to use any of the library's online resources. If you close the browser, you will need to log-in again.


  • Unable to access articles or books available online from University of Lynchburg at your place of work.
    • Very often your employer's network has a firewall that will block communication from a proxy server. When you log-in to the off-campus access page, you are being connected through a proxy server. So, you would not be able to connect from work. It should still work from home.
  • Going directly to the website for a journal from a Google or Google Scholar search, but unable to get articles.
    • If you try to connect to a journal directly, without starting from the Library website and going through the off-campus network log-in, the journal's website will not recognize your computer as one that has access to the site.
    • Library Access should solve this problem. Email us, including the name, issue and volume of the journal, if it does not work.
