Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide remote access to databases for anyone who is not a current student, research affiliate, or employee. You can still use our databases within the libraries, however. Just bring a current photo ID to a service desk at any of our eight libraries in order to obtain a guest account, which will allow you to log in to our Dell public computers and use these resources.

Note: there are a few resources that can only be accessed by UMD students, faculty, staff, and research affiliates, as they require authentication with a Directory ID and password even when on campus. These are:

Chem BioDraw Ultra
EBL (EBooks)
SciFinder Scholar
