Database access on the Minnetonka campus is blocked as of Thursday Oct. 01 and is continuing through Monday, Oct. 05. IT is aware of and working on the problem. If you are in Minnetonka but are not on the SMU campus (aka are using your own Internet), you should still be able to access the SMU databases when you log in with your SMU username and password. As always, sorry about the inconvenience!
