Are you working from home or away from the C&W campus? Some library resources have restricted access - this means that you will need login credentials to access them offsite. These resources are identified with a padlock. The padlock you see listed next to select databases on the A-Z Database List indicates that you will need to enter a username and password to get access to that resource.
The login/password information is only available for download on the PHSA network. If you are unable to log into the network and need access, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Please check back regularly for updates and changes. Current passwords were changed on June 16, 2022. They will be updated again in June 2023.
