Database Access: Databases with User Limits

Limited Simultaneous Users

If you are trying to access one of these databases and cannot get in, please wait a while and try again.

  • Biological Abstracts (10)
  • Biological Abstracts backfiles (10)
  • Encyclopedia of Social Work (3)
  • IEEE Explore Digital Library (10)
  • Oxford African-American Studies Center (1)
  • SciFinder (supposedly unlimited, but sometimes has problems)
  • Social Work Abstracts (8)
  • Very Short Introductions (3)

Faculty who need one of these for a class you're teaching may notify Virginia Osborne with the date/time of the class and number of students at least three working days (M - F) ahead of the session. Virginia will contact the vendor to request that the restriction be lifted temporarily.
