Online Access

Connect from Off-Campus

The Library website provides access to thousands of electronic journals, books, databases, and other resources. This is the easiest way to connect to library resources off-campus.

When accessing an electronic resource from the library website, you will be directed to a login screen where you need to enter your U of R username and password (same username as URCourses or webmail). 

Off-campus access to electronic access to University of Regina requires an active login. If you haven't yet activated your University of Regina account, visit the account activation portal. To activate your account, you will need your U of R account name, your 9 digit student or employee ID, and your activation code. If you've activated your account but have forgotten your password, visit the password reset webpage.

The best place to begin your search is Quick Find, the search portal for our collection. To find full text items in Quick Find, refine your search using the "Full text online" filter. You can also search our databases directly from the Library database listing, or find resources on our research guides.


  1. Make sure your browser is set to allow JavaScript and cookies, and that you are using the most recent version of Chrome or Firefox.

  3. Ensure your uregina login and password are entered in the correct fields. If you have your library barcode, you can also use the barcode/last name fields.
