Access databases directly through the library website. If you try to access a library resource through a link on another site, you may not be recognized as an ASU affiliate. In addition, sometimes there are issues with accessing a library link from within AsULearn. Trying accessing the resource through the library's website:

Ask a Librarian. If you cannot log in to the library's databases, please contact us.

Report a problem. If you come across a problem with a particular database, please report the problem.

Try another database in your subject area. Sometimes databases have technical problems -- try another database listed in your subject area.

Never pay for a journal or magazine article! If a database does not recognize you as an ASU affiliate or if the library does not subscribe to a particular journal, you may be asked to purchase the article. The library can order articles for you through Interlibrary Loan.
