All of our databases may be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet, with your NetID username and password. This username/password is the same one that you use to log into campus computers, the wireless network, NetStorage,etc.
If you have not created your password, go to accounts.ewu.edu. See NetID Account for more information.
If you have problems logging in, see below.
NOTE: If you can access one database, but not another (such as EBSCOhost databases are working fine, but you cannot access ProQuest databases), please contact the Reference Desk at Ask a Librarian. We need to know when specific databases are not working!
