ELM Access

You can create links to individual databases in one of two ways:

ELM Links: These links go through our Minitex server to access the databases. Anyone in Minnesota can access these links without a username or password. Find ELM Links in the ELM Learning Center.

Direct Links: These links bypass our server and go directly to the databases. Users can access these links without a username or password from your library. Outside of your library, they will need a username and password assigned by the vendor. With Direct Links, libraries have access to administrative modules for user statistics and interface customization options. Find Direct Links below.

Note About IP Addresses

Please note: If you are prompted for an ID and password when you follow any of the database links, that indicates that the vendor does not have your current IP addresses on file. Please complete our IP address change form to have your IPs updated.

Britannica

Place the links below on your library's website to access the Britannica databases.  

Remote access passwords are available for every Minnesota library.
