How do I access e-resources (databases, online books and journals)?

As part of Rowan University Libraries the Rowan-Virtua SOM Library provides access to thousands of online resources, such as databases, e-Journals, and e-books.  In most cases these are licensed resources and can only be accessed on and off-campus by current Rowan University students, faculty and staff, residents from Rowan-Virtua SOM affiliated institutions, OLOL/Virtua nursing students and faculty, and Rowan-Virtua SOM volunteer faculty.

To access online resources you must start at a Rowan University Libraries' website.  When you access a licensed online resource users will 1st be prompted to select their affiliation, either Rowan or Cooper Health.  After selecting Rowan as your affiliation you will be prompted to enter your Rowan NetID and directed to authenticate through Duo. 

To activate or set-up your Rowan NetID go to:

Under "Other Login Options" click the Other Login button  and follow the prompts.  To access any Rowan service or resource, including library resources, you are required to enroll and use Duo, Rowan’s 2 factor authentication method. 

Rowan-Virtua SOM affiliate residents see this FAQ on how to get your Rowan account. 

Sorry, alumni are not eligible to access Rowan University Libraries' online resources.
