OFF-CAMPUS DATABASE ACCESS

If you are having problems, please consult our troubleshooting tips.

  1. Open any browser.  (examples: Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.)
     
  2. From the library's homepage select the EAGLIT  Web catalog link, then next select the Databases link or just type  http://library.tamut.edu/ElectronicResources/DatabaseResources.htm in the address field at the top of the browser.
     
  3. After selecting a database you will be asked for your Username and Password (this will authenticate you for a search session).

    Username is the first 4 characters of your last name plus the last 4 digits of your Campus Wide I.D. (CWID) number.  If your last name is 3 characters long or less, just use those letters.  If your name has a special character, such as an apostrophe or space, omit the special character and just use the letters.  See the examples below:
           
            Jones, John / 123456789  jone6789
            Lee, Kelly / 123456789 Lee6789

            O'Brian, Carol / 123456789 OBri6789

    Password is your CWID number (example: 123456789).  If the password contains letters, all letters must be capitalized.

     

  4. Lastly, the authentication process uses "cookies" to remember that you are logged in for that session only.  Once you close the browser, your session will terminate.  It will be necessary to log in for each session.
