Signing-on to Feinberg Library databases from off-campus

Getting Started

The first time during your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.) session that you click on a link to a Feinberg Library Database, you will retrieve a web form that asks you to provide a username (your NetID) and password. Once you enter this information you will not have to provide it again as long as you leave your Internet browser running.

Please pay particular attention to what is requested for your NetID (username) and password:

  • Your NetID/username is the same as the one you use for your campus email account.
  • The password is the last four digits of your Social Security Number and the first four letters of your last name in capital letters. This is referred to as your PSU NetID
  • These instructions are repeated on the form.

Below is a copy of the sign-on form:
