Accessing databases

Ryan Library subscribes to over 80 Reference Databases.  These subscription-based resources provide online access to journal and magazine articles and/or citations.

  • Go to our list of Reference Databases, and select which database you wish to use.
  • At this point, the screen below should appear.  If you get a different screen (i.e. one from the database itself that asks for a "username/password"), contact us.

  • Login with your first and last name (with a space between) in the first box, and your PLNU 8-digit ID number (which can be found by the barcode on your ID card) in the second box. 

  • This 8-digit number is near the barcode on your ID card.  (If you are new to the PLNU community and do not yet have in ID card, Email us (or use the Ask a Librarian box on this page).

  • Click on the Submit button.  This should take you to the database.

Questions? Contact us (or use the Ask a Librarian box on this page).

Note: If you are a guest in the library, and wish to use a database, see the librarian for a temporary login.
