          Off Campus Access to Library Resources

          Off-campus access to most Forsyth Library electronic resources is restricted to authorized users (FHSU faculty, students, staff). If you are off-campus and select a restricted resource you will be directed to the FHSU Secure Authorization page. Enter your TigerTracks username and password. That’s it. You are authenticated! If you are already logged-in to TigerTracks or Blackboard you are already authenticated.
