What do I do when asked for a password?

A priority of the NIH Library is to provide seamless access (by IP recognition) to all electronic resources. However, because some publishers are not yet offering the access through IP recognition we do have to accept password dependent access. When a password is needed for an NIH user (NIH staff) it appears in the "Notes" column of the table display for online journals.

Non-NIH users will not see information in that column as publisher licenses restrict us to offering electronic resources to NIH staff only.

If you still need help, either call the NIH Library Information Desk at 301-496-1080 or submit a question via the Ask a Question form. Library staff will reply to comments within 24-48 hours.
