Computer Use of Databases for Non-U of M Researchers
I am not affiliated with the University of Minnesota, can I still use the databases?
Yes, visitors and researchers may stop by at a library
service desk to sign up for a computer workstation card by presenting
a valid government issued photo ID. The card will give the visitor
up to 2 hours of computer access per day and is valid for 6 months.
After 6 months, the card may be renewed.
