Business & Management: Databases

Research Guide for general Business and Management resources

Accessing Databases

On 5/21/18, the Library changed from using EZProzy to a different authentication service, OpenAthens. Off-campus access should be more simpler and streamlined. Redirect urls were assured from our links used in our databases A-Z list; however, we have encountered some problems. We are working on getting these urls to work properly, and we apologize for these temporary hiccups.

Please send email to: - so we can track these issues.
