Q. I logged in and was using one of the library databases, but then a message popped up saying I had to log in again. Why?
Occasionally, the login connection between your computer and the library will get interrupted. When this happens, the system is no longer sure if you are authorized to use a library database (even if you’re still in it) and will ask you to log in again.
One way you can check to see if you are still connected is to go to the Connect from Off Campus page and check the Am I Off Campus status box. This will tell you if you are still connected or not. If not, try logging in again.
This should not happen frequently, however. If it does, email the library or call 802-656-2200 to report the problem.
Q. Why do I have to log into library resources?
A.Most of the library’s electronic resources are subscription-based. One of the stipulations of those subscription contracts is that we limit access to people who are connected to the university in some way, such as being a student. Logging in proves that you are authorized to use our resources.
Q. What is my UVM NetID?
Your UVM NetID is the same username and password that you use to get into other university resources such as your email. Please contact the Information Technology department
if you have questions about your NetID.
