Problem Connecting to Databases?

Usually, when this happens, there is no system-wide problem. Please see if one of the following suggestions fixes the problem for you.

Be sure that you are accessing the database or Google Scholar through R Barbara Gitenstein Library’s website. If you are off campus, you should be prompted to login to the TCNJ portal. You can find a list of Library resources here: https://library.tcnj.edu/search-tools/databases-a-z
If the problem persists, try using a different browser. (Safari and Chrome can be problematic with some database interfaces.)

If that does not work, try clearing your cache/deleting or clearing your browser history and closing your browser. Then, reopen your browser and try again.
If you still have a problem after trying these suggestions, please call the Reference Desk at 609-771-2417. Reference Services hours can be found at https://library.tcnj.edu/about-the-library/hours-of-operation/

For further assistance with Library Resources, please call the Reference Desk (609) 771-2417. Accessing library resources from off campus.
