Because of licensing restrictions, some of CARL's online databases are only available from outside the library to users who (1) are CGSC students, faculty, or staff, (2) have a library account, or (3) have access to CGSC Blackboard.

If you are off campus, your library account USERNAME and PASSWORD will allow you access to our licensed databases. The prompt looks like the following:
