Databases A-Z Fixed

The Databases A-Z list has been repaired, thank you for your patience.

 

We are having a problem with the Databases A-Z and Databases by Subject from off campus. When you click the link for a database, there is special magic that’s supposed to happen to send you to the login screen, so the database knows you belong to UWGB and have the right to use the database. That special magic is not happening, so most of our UWGB or UW-System purchased databases don’t know you have the right to use them.

We have redirected the Databases A-Z to our backup, which is a Word document, but it’ll get you where you need to go.  We should be able to get that fixed on Monday.  Sorry for the inconvenience!
