Material ConneXion recently made an update to the database that makes creating personal accounts much easier. To create a personal account, click the Personal Accounts button (located on the top right-hand-side of the page) after accessing. Simple instructions will follow. Personal accounts can be used on and off campus, and offer certain added benefits and features. For example, students and faculty can easily tag their favorite materials and create folders to keep track of research.
This video will help faculty and students understand how to best use the database: Material ConneXion Database Walkthrough.
