Once you select the name of the database, you will be brought to the sign-in screen.  You can sign-in with your name-# and password, just as you would when signing into myCOTC.  If you have already signed into myCOTC or your Moodle, you will not need to sign in again; you will be brought directly to the database.  If you have issues with your password, please call the ITS Help Desk: 740-366-9244.
