What user name and password should I use when I attempt to access an article that requires a EBSCO username and password?
Thank you for your message about being prompted to enter an EBSCO user name and password. Baker does not use EBSCO usernames and passwords. You will need to access the databases a different way. If you are using Baker Library Search, occasionally people have trouble accessing the articles from home.
Start at the Online Resources - Subject List, select a topic such as General or Medical. Then select a specific database such as
Helpful hint: You will need your library number. It is 14-digits and on your ID card.
You can run your searches directly in the actual databases from the Online Resources - Subject List using any database directly.
- If you want to use the aggregate search enginge, Baker Library Search, then having directly accessed an EBSCO database (such the those above), it should by-pass the request for a user name and password for EBSCO.
- If you are looking for a specific article, you can locate the article by its citation in E-Journals A-Z--search the TITLE of the publication and not the title of the article, then accessing the article through the volume and issue number.
