Problems connecting from outside the Library?
If you are not asked for your Library card # to authenticate after clicking on our link, please check for the following:
- Security settings in your web browser should be set no higher than Medium.
- Clear your Temporary Internet Files or cache.
- Reference USA requires that referring URLs be accepted by your computer's firewall to authenticate library users. If you have a firewall, such as Norton, or other security software on your machine, it may block this information from being sent to the online resource provider's website, who then cannot tell that you are a valid user. In those cases, referenceusa.com must be added as a permitted referrer.
If you are still having problems connecting, ReferenceUSA asks that you contact them for further troubleshooting at 1-800-808-1113.
Note: If you are accessing ReferenceUSA remotely, YOU CANNOT BOOKMARK ReferenceUSA. ReferenceUSA is offered via a secured host that authenticates users prior to forwarding them to ReferenceUSA. Accessing ReferenceUSA via a bookmark that you have created sidesteps the authentication process.
