Hi, Bee,

At University of Missouri – Kansas City, we use an icon for databases that require users to create accounts.  The hover text reads “Register to use this resource.”  You can see it for SciFinder-n at https://libguides.library.umkc.edu/az.php?a=s.

I am wondering whether anyone uses iconography to distinguish between resources in your A-Z lists that require your users to input their normal campus-wide credentials, versus those that require individually assigned usernames and passwords. It seems useful to me to distinguish between the two but I'm not sure how to represent visually...
