Help! Having trouble logging into a database?

1. Try searching for the database by name in Novanet and click on the "Check for Full Text" link.

How this works: When you enter the database via the Library's catalogue, it establishes your university affiliation. Entering through the catalogue establishes this for the database.

2. Try waiting a few minutes.

How this works: Some database subscriptions are limited to a certain number of users at the same time. If you're having trouble logging in, the problem may be that the maximum number of users has already been reached. The database may not have a special error message to indicate that this is the problem, so you may see an error message saying that your credentials are not valid. 

3. Contact us! Call the Library's Circulation Desk during open hours at 902-422-1271 (ext. 171) or email us at

Chat with a librarian through Novanet Live Help. Use the Live Help chat box located below or on the Library's website.
