Database Access Change

As of March 30th, the electronic resources - specifically the databases for finding academic journal articles - are now only available through the Portal.

To access the databases, log in through the Portal (same as you do for Moodle) and you'll see an area to the left called the dashboard.  In this icon clump there will be an icon with mouseover text that reads: “Connect to Library Databases.”  The icon looks like three blue stacked disks.  Click there to gain access to the library databases.  It no longer matters if you are on or off campus for database access, the way to get on is the same.

If you are having trouble accessing your Portal account for any reason, please contact IT by emailing or by calling 225-768-1720.

Good luck on exams!  And have a great spring break next week. :)
