Our world at your fingertips!
We want all of those interested in using Ebsco, Novelist, Gale, etc. to access them through the catalog. We used to have links to the resource directly, but that required users to login with a password specific to that resource, but now if they log in to their library catalog account using their card number and password, then click on the resource link on the catalog home page, it authenticates access for them, while also restricting access to (tax) “paying customers” only. The direct to catalog could just be “Log in to your library account for access” with Log in being a link to our catalog home page.
