Access problems: Being asked to pay for an online Library resource
Last Updated: Aug 02, 2022 Views: 40

If you are searching for resources using Page 1+ or one of the Library’s Digital Resource Collections, you do not need to pay to access any articles. If you are asked to purchase access, contact the Library for assistance.

You should also not be asked to log in with an account from the provider to access resources. You should only need to log in the following circumstances:

  • If you are off campus, you will need to log in with your College Network Account to view resources. 
  • If you want to download an ebook, you may be asked to log in with the provider (such as EBSCO or ProQuest) .
