Having trouble accessing an e-journal or database?

How do I tell what years of an e-journal we have access to?

Clicking the Get It button button from an article citation in an external database will bring you to a screen that gives the electronic availability information for the resource.

Prompted for a username and password

Trying to access a full-text article but I am being prompted for a username and password (not my Brandeis login), or I am being asked to purchase the article.

If you are using OneSearch or Find Journals A-Z list, click Online access to see availability information. If the volume and year of the article you are looking for is not included in our subscription, you may submit an ILL request for the article. If the availability information indicates that we should have access to that issue, please email with a description of the problem.
