To access restricted library databases from off campus, you must have a UM-Flint uniqname and LAN password.

If you have a link to a resource (e.g. an article you emailed yourself from a database) and it doesn't let you in from off campus, you may need to add information to the web address. You can do this with a bookmarklet.

There are some resources and services that don't use the LAN password:
