Accessing a database? Emory NetID required after Jan 12

Next time you access a library research database on-campus, you’ll be prompted to enter your Emory NetID and password, just as you currently are prompted to do so off-campus.This aligns the library’s authentication system for accessing e-books, e-journals, databases with the same system used to access other Emory resources, such as OPUS and Blackboard.Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 2.02.33 PM

  • What does this mean? Beginning Jan. 12, 2015, you must use your  network ID and password to login to online library resources, even when using a computer or mobile device on the Emory network.
  • Why are we making this change?  Requiring each user to log in with a network ID on and off campus enables more effective compliance with vendor agreements and reduces security risks.
  • Have questions?

(Due to technical difficulties, the Authentication Project (Shibboleth & EZProxy) orginally planned to begin on Jan 5th, has been DELAYED by one week. On January 12th, the Emory Libraries will implement the same login process for accessing e-books, e-journals, databases and other library licensed content online as is currently used by other Emory resources, such as Compass and HR Self-Service.)
