You may see this message when trying to access an article from your Apple laptop, computer, or iPad:

Licensing agreements for these databases require that access be extended only to authorized users. Once you have been validated by this system, a "cookie" is sent to your browser as an ongoing indication of your authorization to access these databases. This cookie only needs to be set once during login.

If you are using a firewall or network privacy program, you may need reconfigure it to allow cookies to be set from this server.

As you access databases, they may also use cookies. Your ability to use those databases may depend on whether or not you allow those cookies to be set.

Settings need to be set to allow EZproxy's cookies to be accepted. To fix this problem, you need to change your cookie settings in the browser:

Choose Safari > Preferences, click Privacy, then select "Always allow"

Menu > Options > Privacy > History > Select "Firefox will: Use custom settings for history."
"Accept cookies from sites" should be check marked.
"Accept third party cookies" should be set to "Always."

Internet Explorer
Tools (gear icon) > Internet options > Privacy tab
Set to "Medium," "Low," or "Accept All Cookies."

Click on More (three vertical dots) > Settings > Show Advanced Settings (if not shown) > Privacy > Content Settings.

In the Cookies section, select "Allow local data to be set."
Click OK to save changes.

The "Always allow," "Accept third party cookies: Always," and "Accept All Cookies" will let all websites, third parties, and advertisers store cookies and other data on your computer.
