    Note: Depending on the database, you might be taken to the SUSS Library sign-in page or the Database page. If it is the latter, there's an additional step: Look for and click on OpenAthens (the library verification platform) to get to the SUSS Library page where you will be asked to log in with your SUSS username and password.
