Getting Started

If you access our online databases while at the library, just click on the database you are interested in and begin exploring. If you are using a computer outside the library, you will need to enter your library card number (or student ID) and PIN (the default PIN is the last four digits of your library card number) into the login screen. Due to contractual agreements, not all borrower accounts may be able to access these resources from outside the library, in which case we encourage you to visit the library to use our computers.

If you encounter problems the first time you attempt to log in, please clear your browser’s cookies and try again.
