Accessing OhioLINK Resources

Most OhioLINK resources, such as the Research Databases, Electronic Journal Center, and Digital Media Center, require you to authenticate with OhioLINK in order to gain access.  Any Research Database marked with the OhioLINK logo will require authentication.  You can authenticate here or when you are directed to when accessing OhioLINK resources.  Note:   This works for recent versions of most popular browsers, but it does not work with America Online's default browser.  If you use AOL, you will need to use another browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator).

If you experience problems authenticating, please see the OhioLINK Remote Authentication FAQ.

Accessing other Electronic Resources

Some of our electronic resources, including some databases and electronic journals, are subscribed to directly by the University of Toledo, not all of OhioLINK.  These may be accessed through the UT Library Catalog record, just search the catalog for the title of the journal or database that you want to connect to.  A link will be provided in the full catalog record.  Selected resources are only available to people affiliated with programs on the Health Science campus or the Medical Center.

Courtesy Card Holders (including Alumni)

Our database licenses and subscriptions for our electronic resources do not allow us to provide or sell access to unaffiliated users (i.e., not current faculty, staff, or students).  Therefore, courtesy card holders, including members of the Alumni Association, may not use our databases and subscriptions remotely, but must use them in the library.
