***NOTE: Our electronic resources are available 24/7.***

Each database has hundreds of journals available in their collections.

OpenAthens will allow you to access DHSS Library resources when you're not at a DHSS site or using a VPN.

Contact the library to sign up for a free account.

Once you have an account, just log in to and access databases, journal articles, and eBooks without needing to use any other passwords.  

If you are already on a database, look for a button saying, “Access through OpenAthens,” “Institutional Access,” or something similar. Clicking on that button will allow you to log in to OpenAthens and access the item.

OpenAthens accounts from the DHSS Library are limited to DHSS employees.
