Issues trying to access databases?

Have you experienced issues trying to access databases through the Georgia Tech Library website? It is likely due to our recent change to OpenAthens IP Authentication. We continue to work diligently to resolve any and all issues users may experience. If you have any access questions or database access problems, please contact This will allow us to establish an issues log and address the access issues systemically. Learn more about this OpenAthens Authentication service at, including changing permanently linked information ("Recent News" - right column: OpenAthens; Experiencing Issues with databases, etc.).

While accessing e-resources off-campus, you may notice an OpenAthens login screen. The OpenAthens screen will ask you to identify your home. Use the "Login via your institution: Other Institution Login" (box, right column of screen) then "Find your organization" to search for Georgia (Georgia Institute of Technology). See example. From there, use the Georgia Tech login service and you will be given access to the resource. 

A list of all databases is at ("Find, Borrow, Request" (top row) "Find Materials" "Databases"). Check this list if your URL does not work properly (by name in the search box, or alphabetically, or by subject).  Some of the URLs in this guide may not be up-to-date.
