Frequently Asked Questions


How do I find out what my username & password are?


Please contact Christine Giannoni. Your username will be your Field Museum domain name (e.g., cgiannoni) and the password is the 5-digit code on the back of your ID badge.


Where do I link to the library’s electronic resources?


You will find the link to "E-Journals" on the Library's web page under Library Resources.


How do I use the proxy server?


Once you have searched for a title in the e-journal portal, you will see links to click on in order to access that content. Once you click a link, you will be directed to a login page that prompts you to enter your username and password. Once your username and password are correctly entered, you should be taken directly to the content of the journal or database.


Which library resources do I have remote access to?
