Database Troubleshooting

How to: Create a Database Bookmark

To bookmark the Library's databases correctly, you need to use the friendly URL and NOT the URL it redirects to. It's simple to do; you just need to do it in a specific way.

  1. Start from the Library's Databases A-Z.
  2. Locate the database you want to bookmark.
  3. Click-and-drag the link to your bookmarks bar.

If you already have a bookmark to a database, and it's not working properly, replace it with a new bookmark.

If you have specific publications or tools bookmarked that are not listed on our Databases A-Z list (for example, a bookmark directly to Foreign Affairs in EBSCO) you can use the OpenAthens Link Generator to create customized links that accept your OpenAthens credentials.

Databases A-Z

Whenever possible, access the Library's databases from the Databases A-Z.
