Technical Difficulties :-/

EDIT: These issues have since been resolved.

If you're having trouble accessing our databases, you're not alone. Most of them are not working, including our catalog. We and the computer center are trying to solve this issue.

However, we have figured out that two of our databases can be reached through different links (but probably not off-campus):

Learning Express Library


And these still work:



Annual Reviews

Bayou State Periodical Index

Classical Music Library

College Source (catalogs)

IEEE Digital Library

ISI Web of Knowledge

Mergent Online


RIA Tax Services User Registration
RIA Tax Services Checkpoint (Search)

ULM Electronic Journals (Ebsco A to Z)

Off-campus access for Delta Students

Delta students no longer use Social Security numbers for remote access and will instead use their Delta Campus IDs. However, this ID does not yet work for accessing databases off-campus. We are working to resolve this issue.
