Hi, I am trying to access the online research database and I am wondering what username and password we use, we have so many so I was having a little difficulty. Thank you!

Answer

Thanks for your question about how to access our online research databases.

The login credentials are your Bates Username, (First initial+last name) and your password. If you haven't logged in before, the default password looks a lot like this:

Bates123456789 

Note the capital "B" and the nine digit number. Don't use these nine digits, use your nine digit student ID number. 

First, try your login credentials and see if you can access your Bates email account. If they work with Bates email, but not for databases, you will need to ask for a password reset. Please contact Information Technology: it@batestech.edu. 

Let me know if this works or if you need more help. If you would like to call me to get help over the phone, I will be happy to assist you: (206) 790-4841. 

BTW, I can also help to make your research assignment easier in a live online help session. Let me know if you would like to do that. :-) 

Your librarian, 

Mike
