Reference Database Vendors

These 3rd party vendors offer reference database services to patrons both inside and outside of the library. These services authenticate through one of two methods, a proxy-authentication service such as EZProxy or OpenAthens, or using barcode prefix authentication (reading the first-four digits of a patrons card).
