How can library media specialist, teachers, and other non-students get access to the e-resources available through FLA-PASS? Remote access to databases licensed by the Florida Virtual Campus are only available to students in accelerated mechanism programs. However, access to databases should be available on a “walk-in” basis at either a local state university or college library, depending on the resource. At some libraries you may need a guest username and password to log into the library computers. Ask at the library’s reference or circulation desk if you need help.

How do I become an authorized administrator of FLA-PASS for my school? To become a FLA-PASS administrator for your school, complete the administrator application form and have your Principal or Assistant Principal return it via email to Katrina Figgett, at the Florida Department of Education. Each school may have up to four FLA-PASS administrators.
