Help with Online Databases

On-Campus Access

To access online databases from a Rose State College computer connected to the campus network, you do not need to log in — just select a database title.

Off-Campus Access

When you select the database title of a licensed online database from off-campus, you will be presented with the College single-sign-on (SSO) login page. You must use your College authentication credentials to login. Please contact a librarian to help you troubleshoot online database access. Be prepared to provide your first and last name, student ID number and birth date.

Students: Your SSO username is your Rose2Plus ID which is created according to the following format:

First Name Initial + Last Name Initial + 7-digit Student ID Number

For example, suppose John Smith has Student ID 0003418. His Rose2PlusID would be JS0003418. Your password is the same as the one you use on-campus.

Note: Occasionally, the last name initial does not coincide with your current last name even if it is correctly displayed in OASIS. If the proper initial does not work, try the last name initial of the name under which you were first admitted as a student at the college.

Faculty: Your username is the part of your College email address that precedes the @ symbol. It is usually your First Name Initial + Last Name. Your password is the same as the one you use on-campus.

EBSCOhost Status

EBSCOhost provides an online status tool that indicates known issues with their products and services. If you are having trouble with access, please do not contact EBSCO. Please contact the Library instead to see if we might be able to assist you. If we cannot, we will submit a support ticket to EBSCO.

Error Messages

If you see an error message when trying to access an online database, please contact the Library so we can resolve the issue as soon as possible! Be prepared to provide us with the database name, a description of the error message, the type of computer you are using, and the name of your browser. If you have a clear photo of the error message taken with your smartphone, that may be helpful as well.
