[Eril-l] Discover-ability & Eresources

Hi Yolande,   We list resources that are not available via IP in our A to Z databases list, and in the description we note brief special access instructions.   When longer instructions are necessary, we have them on a LibGuide that we can link to:   http://libguides.dickinson.edu/specialaccess.  This also is easy to pass on as a link when we get a related reference question.

We use our typical means of communication/marketing to get the word out to our community.  Some of the databases are primarily for specific department/audiences, so we try to make sure the faculty know and share with their students, and also liaisons will mention these in classes and consultations.

Here’s are examples from our Databases List:

Good afternoon,

What options to do you use to make eresources available when they are only accessible via username and password?  Do you catalog these items?  Our Business library has a growing number of very specialized databases that are not available via IP address.  How are other libraries dealing with similar issues of discoverability?  Thanks.
