How Do I?: Off-campus Access

Cadets, Staff & Faculty

USMA-issued laptops will have a VPN software client installed. When you are using the library website from a laptop connected through VPN, you will be able to access all resources as if you were physically at West Point.

  • Please contact Goldcoats or your DCO if you need assistance with the VPN software.

Library Account logins

Library Accounts

  • You do not need to sign in to use this system. 
  • Westpoint.edu users will be authenticated through your O365 credentials, allowing single sign-on for your library account instead of needing a separate account. These accounts should be ready soon. If you want to sign in prior to this, come to the Library Front Desk, and we will create a temporary account for you.
  • Users without westpoint.edu accounts will need to come to the USMA Library to create a username and password.
  • What does the account give you? View current items checked out, requests, renewals, personalize search results, create RSS feeds, create email alerts, save records and save search queries.
