Welcome to Lynchburg College. Every college and university library is a bit different. Resources you had at your previous instition may not be available here. We have books, journals, films, music and other sources of information that were not available there.

We have provided some quick ways to get started with using the Knight-Capron library on this page.

If you want to learn even more about the library and how the staff can help you with research for your classes, please contact us via email, phone, chat or text.

Research tips

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.
