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

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.

Browser, firewall and privacy product blocks cookie
The most common cause for this error is browser, firewall, or personal privacy product blocking EZproxy's cookie from being set. Users who encounter this error should be encouraged to adjust their local cookie settings to allow EZproxy's cookie to be accepted.

Because browsers are frequently being updated, we suggest searching for the name of your browser plus "accept cookies" (without the quotation marks).
