Sorry you're having trouble with GFK MRI. It's one of the databases that requires extra steps to use.
The best way to know that is to always check the + after the database name on our website e.g. here

For GFK MRI, each semester you have to

  1. Login (with the link you see in the +), to get the access code, using your FIT user name/password
  2. THEN take that code to another link (shown in the +) and fil out the form
  3. THEN wait for an email from GFK/MRI
  4. Finally, login through the link on the database page

    Some of our databases put these steps in place so they can be very sure that only current students are using them, but we understand that it seems complicated! We're always happy to help you figure it out.
