Connecticut State Library ResearchIT CT Links

Dear Public Librarians and Educators:
We have been getting many inquiries about remote access to researchIT for students who do not have a library card.
We have been working with our vendors to temporarily provide remote access to researchIT databases without requiring library card authentication. EBSCO has created a list of temporary links that can be used by patrons and students who don't have a library card at this time.
I have attached links that can be used if students or patrons are having trouble accessing researchIT databases.
The links should provide access using geolocation authentication. If that fails, it should prompt the user for a user name and password.
EBSCO has provided the following universal password that can be used in that case.
username: ctlibresearch
password: Spring20!
Additionally, we are compiling a list of free online educational resources that can be used by educators and students here:

Connecticut State Library RB Digital Catalog

RB Digital has a catalog of ebooks and audiobooks available to every resident in the state of Connecticut. 

Child Health and Development Institute

The Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut has assembled a list of resources​ for professionals (medical and educators), as well as families. Many of the resources will seem familiar, but some may be new to you.


Websites are organized under these headings:  Health and Safety; Economic Support; Food, Legal Aid and Social Services; Child Emotional Well Being; Behavioral Health Crises; and Domestic Violence.
