1) Click on the Hoover's link through the FIT Database pages.

This is always the best way into our databases. 
You can use links from the A-Z database list or any appropriate subject database listings. 
All these pages are constantly updated to keep our connections to the databases current.   Sometimes students will Google "FIT Library databases,"  which unfortunately might link them to an out-of-date or administrative page that doesn't work, and we have no control over the Google search results. 

2) All of our databases includes an initial log-in page. Enter your FIT username (without the and your password.

3) Many common problems can be identified and solved using our Database FAQ (Frequently-Asked Questions) & Troubleshooter.
Sometimes just trying a different browser will help. 
If you don't see your problem listed or if you still can't resolve it, of course you can always use Ask a Librarian to email or chat with us, call us at 212-217-4400 or text us at 646-759-9553.
