http://www.marshall.usc.edu/lib Please contact the Crocker Library if you have any questions about how to access or rary/contact-us.htm use any of these databases: Front Desk (213) 740-8520 library@marshall.usc.edu or John Juricek (213) 740-7621 juricek@marshall.usc.edu Eduardo Tinoco (213) 740-9167 etinoco@marshall.usc.edu Kim Esser (213) 740-6255 kim.esser@marshall.usc.edu http://www.marshall.usc.edu/lib The Crocker Library website is your gateway to an extensive collection of business rary/ research tools and resources. The USC Libraries website provides access to information resources covering the full http://www.usc.edu/libraries/ range of subject areas at USC: www.usc.edu/libraries The Crocker Library website has an extensive collection of detailed research guides which explain how to conduct research on a wide variety of topics. These guides are http://www.marshall.usc.edu/lib constantly updated and are an excellent supplement to the information found in this rary/research-guides.htm document. A link to these research guides can be found here: http://www.marshall.usc.edu/library/research-guides.htm Crocker Library's contracts with commercial information systems providers stipulate http://www.marshall.usc.edu/lib that we restrict access to Marshall's electronic resources to members of the USC rary/electronicrecsources/acce and/or Marshall communities (currently enrolled students, faculty and staff). Most of ssing-resources-fromthese systems use your computer's TCP/IP number to validate your status, which offcampus.htm means you must use a USC network connection to access these resources. All USC users with valid accounts can automatically access all USC subscription databases using the new Remote Access-Portal (Proxy Server). Use your USC UNIX webmail ID and password to login. Connectivity to all USC subscription databases will be automatically enabled. If you disconnect from the USC network at any time, you will have to login to the Remote Access-Portal again. A Crocker Library web portlet has been created which appears on your MyMarshall screen after you log in. All of the electronic database links listed in the portlet have been enabled to directly connect to those databases without using a PPP or VPN connection. This list does not represent all of Marshall's electronic resources, but it does provide instant connectivity to some of our most popular databases. VPN (Virtual Private Network) software is another way to obtain authenticated access. ITS provides limited support for VPN and it is subject to export restrictions.
