Override The Security Warning Page: Help Is On The Way

by Rhonda Kitchens on 2020-10-14T14:31:00-07:00 in Library and Research Skills | Comments

Many of the Library's subscription databases now have a security screen that comes up to prevent users from going any further.  Once the user overrides the warning, that link is added as OK.  

However, for many users, the warning is frightening. We have a warning on our Databases A-Z page, but many users do not see it.

We thought this was a user side browser error, but have found we need to invest in a new level of authenticating service.

Meantime, please communicate to students it is safe to override, bypass, to go to these sites.
