Having trouble connecting to FHSU's databases? 

If you are using a school (public, elementary, etc, not FHSU) network, the school firewalls interfere with our authentication process. This makes each database ask for a login and password.  

If you use another network and log in with your Tiger NetId before searching Library databases, the authentication should work correctly.
