A database is prompting for a login
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

- you hit a wall in your research
- your usual process isn't working for a particular project
- you want to learn about new tools and strategies to aid your research
