Why can’t I get access to the databases?

Accessing databases should be freely available whether you are at home, the office or OUM campus. In accessing a subscribed databases, there will always be security involved to prevent hacking or misuse. To secure our own databases, there is a little change in the access link that you will notice on the Library portal.
