An integral part of the Collaborative MBA program is being able to access the electronic resources at any of the four institutions’ libraries. This page explains the process for accessing electronic resources, whether at Bluffton, CMU, EMU, or Goshen.
All students will be registered as a student at one campus, i.e., their home campus. Students will be able to access resources at their home library just as any other student at that campus would.
In addition, all Collaborative MBA students will have access to the electronic resources at the other three libraries (with occasional exceptions) using a generic login which will be provided in program documentation.
Note: To access Goshen's resources, students should use the same login credentials they use to access the Collaborative Moodle page. YOU MAY GET A REJECTION NOTICE THE FIRST TIME YOU LOGIN; REPEAT THE LOGIN AND YOU SHOULD BE GRANTED ACCESS.
Faculty teaching in the program, as well as selected administrators and library staff, will also be using the generic login to access resources at non-home libraries.
For Bluffton students, faculty, and staff, nearly all of Bluffton's research databases can be used wherever internet access is available.
You may be asked to confirm your status as a Bluffton user by providing your last name (first and last name will NOT work) and the barcode number from your Bluffton ID card (all 14 digits, beginning with 21195). Ask us if you need help locating this information.
