Connecting to the Dartmouth network

Most of the Library's online subscription resources are licensed for campus use only and require a Dartmouth network/IP address ( or -- rather than a password -- in order to gain access.

  • For the most reliable access to library subscription databases, use one of the many public workstations available in Baker-Berry Library.  These are connected to the network via ethernet -- far faster than the wireless network.
  • There are two wireless networks available to guests: Dartmouth Public & Dartmouth Library Public.  Only the "Dartmouth Library Public" wireless network operates on the IP address.  The Dartmouth Library Public signal is available within all of our campus libraries.  It is not available within the dormitories.  "Dartmouth Public" is campus-wide


Campus Wireless Networks

  • Dartmouth Library Public is available for visitors to the libraries (signal can only be received within the library facilities).  The network has a Dartmouth IP address, and so allows access to the Library's licensed online resources.
  • Dartmouth Public provides guest internet access throughout campus, but does not use a Dartmouth IP address and therefore does not allow access to the Library's licensed resources.
  • Dartmouth Secure and EduRoam are restricted to Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff.
  • Consult Computing's web site for additional information about the campus wireless networks.
