Other Databases

We're not able to provide remote access to subscription databases other than those listed on this page because licensing agreements with the publishers limit such access to current students, faculty and staff.  You can visit here and use them in house, with a temporary password supplied by the IT helpdesk in the Info Commons.  You’ll need to email articles to yourself because printing won’t be available.  You can do all this at most other academic libraries too.  Check out their websites to see what they offer.  And don't forget to investigate what your local public library has to offer.

Databases from home!


The library is now able to provide alumnae/i remote access to several of our databases using your Goucher credentials. Please visit to learn how to get started. If you need to locate your credentials, please contact or (410) 337-6322.
