No Magic Logins

If you are searching for articles in Google or Google Scholar, sometimes when you try to open the article you may see a login option.

Article website asking for a login

Unfortunately, these logins are not connected to the OSU ID system, and there is no magic login that the library can provide for these articles.

What to do?

Open another tab or window and paste the article title into 1Search. This will either lead you to the full-text of the article (if we subscribe to the journal) or can connect you to our interlibrary loan system if we do not subscribe to the journal.

To learn more about using library subscription to get the full text of articles or requesting articles the library doesn't have, see the guides linked from the side of this page.
