A database is prompting for a login

Answer

Often, the login on a database site isn't set up for library subscriptions like UMD's. Instead of logging in on that site, try using a proxied link from the UMD library database list. These will display the same login screen used for other UMD sites before displaying the database.

A few databases require you to set up a personal login in order to use the database (e.g., SciFinder).

If you are unable to log in to a database, email libaskus@d.umn.edu for assistance.
