Why can't I log into the databases?

The main reason you would be blocked from using the databases is that you are not enrolled in classes for the current term.

Our licenses with providers of these resources specify that only students taking courses at a Los Rios college during the current term and people currently employed by Los Rios CCD may access them. Students enrolled in a given semester are dropped from access soon after the term ends. If you are enrolled for a future term, access will be restored shortly before the term begins.

Temporary staff and adjunct faculty are in a situation similar to students. Permanent employees have ongoing access until they leave Los Rios. Access to certain databases is provided to Emeriti Association members.

If you are currently enrolled or employed, but are still hitting an Access Denied error screen, please try the following troubleshooting steps using the links below, not the normal process:

  1. Sign out of the library system
  2. Sign in via the alternative login page

If you are still having problems, please contact us for further troubleshooting.
