Passwords for online subscriptions, access to remote resources Patricia Thompson 21 Jan 1997 14:42 UTC

We would like to include in the online catalog all the instructions our
users would need to access a remote resource.  In several cases, the
library has paid for a subscription to a restricted site and the user needs
to know our username and password in order to get in.  An example is Wall
Street Journal, interactive ed.  Our OPAC is not yet accessible to outside
users through the web or telnet, but it may be in the near future.

What have others done about this situation?  If we determine that we can't
put the information in the OPAC, how else can we make it available without
them having to go and ask a reference librarian?
