You may have to adjust the security settings on your computer to access these databases off-campus, and lowering your security settings may make your computer more vulnerable to other security threats. One of our vendors recommends the following: (MS IE setting: Privacy = Medium, Security = Medium-Low, Cookies = Accept All, Pop-up Blocker = Off).
