The URLs for the databases included in this guide may change.

Have you experienced issues trying to access databases through the Georgia Tech Library website? It is likely due to the Library's recent change to OpenAthens IP Authentication. We continue to work diligently to resolve any and all issues users may experience. If you have database access problems or have any access questions, please contact This will allow us to establish an issues log and address the access issues systemically. Learn more about this OpenAthens Authentication service, including changing permanently linked information. While accessing e-resources off-campus, you may notice an OpenAthens login screen. The OpenAthens screen will ask you to identify your home. Use the "Login via your institution: Other Institution Login" (box, right column of screen) then "Find your organization" to search for Georgia Institute of Technology. See example. From there, use the Georgia Tech login service and you will be given access to the resource.
