New Emergency Database Password

The emergency password for accessing the library databases has been changed for J-Term and Spring 2013. This password can be used to get into the databases when your 800# does not work on this login screen:

ezproxy login

To find the emergency password, log in to Vancko Hall and go to the Resnick Library page (to get there, look on the right under “Important Links”). The Fall password will remain active until January 3, 2013.

Remember, if you are not registered for a J-Term course, you will not be able to access the databases with your 800# during the break, even if you are coming back for the Spring semester. In that case, you may use the emergency password to access the databases until the Spring semester officially begins. If you are registered for a J-Term course and your 800# does not log you in, please contact the library (607-746-4635 or so that we can resolve the problem.
