Access to Electronic Resources

This guide explains how to connect to databases and full-text electronic journal articles and books.

Bookmarks and PermaLinks

You may have set up bookmarks on your browser, or permalinks from online syllabi or other documents, to your favorite resources, such as databases, ejournals, or ebooks. Your bookmarks will probably continue to work for a while using the old WAM login credentials, but this old system will eventually be discontinued.  The best solution is to create a new bookmark following these steps:

  • Start from the Library homepage (library.sewanee.edu)
  • Follow our links to search for the bookmarked resource.
  • Search in TigerSearch for articles or ebooks.
  • Click on Research Databases for database content.
  • Click on Research Tools, Find Articles for journals or articles.
  • After you find the book, chapter, article or paper you need, save a new bookmark.
