How to connect

You may link to databases via the title list page, the topic list page, or the drop down menu on the home page. If you use the drop down menu, remember to click "Go!" after picking the database you want.

If you are off campus, you will be promoted to enter your ID and PIN.

Browser configuration

Every vendor has published browser requirements, and the requirements change frequently. In addition, some require helper programs like Acrobat. Some require JavaScript. Most databases are covered by the EBSCO, or FirstSearch documentation. See also the Computer and Database Connection Problems page. Browser diagnostics are available here along with instructions on how to enable JavaScript.
