The IRSC library provides access to over 100 databases from any computer or mobile device. Databases are organized by subject to make it easy to find resources for a specific class. Students can log in using their MyPioneerPortal credentials (RiverMail email and password). Faculty and staff will use their Okta/IRSC email credentials.

MyPioneerPortal log in screen

To log in to the databases, you will use the same Rivermail e-mail address and password you set up to log into MyPioneerPortal. First-time users of MyPioneerPortal can create their password by following the instructions you receive in your activation email. To reset your password, select "Need help signing in." The librarians cannot reset MyPioneerPortal passwords, if you need additional assistance visit the tutorial on MyPioneerPortal.
