Connecting Off-Campus

Research can be a 24/7 job. That's why Decker provides off-campus access.

If you're off-campus, you will be asked to submit your MICA username and password for databases like the library catalog, article databases, streaming video, image databases (unless they are open access), and Digital Decker's collection of restricted MICA graduate theses.

For any off-campus connectivity issues, please contact the Senior Systems Specialist Sherri Faaborg at sfaaborg@mica.edu or 410-225-2467.

Accessing the Library's Online Resources from Outside the United States

if you have internet connection and there are no restrictions to your internet access, you should be able to access all of the Library's online resources.

Access to the Library Catalog and databases from countries that restrict internet access may require the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) software. Use of VPN may also speed up access to the MICA website (including the Decker Library homepage).

If you have restricted internet and cannot have a VPN please contact your faculty and your librarian or refer@mica.edu . We will do our best to assist you in completing your research. 

Connecting to the image database Artstor

The image database Artstor requires a login on campus every 120 days. If you've never created a login on campus, or haven't logged in on campus in over 120 days, please email us at refer@mica.edu.
