Online Library Resources

The on-line resources available to Dakota College at Bottineau patrons provide literally millions of items such as magazine, journal, newspaper, and reference citations-many of which are full-text articles. These links are to paid subscription databases, thus the content is reliable.

Instructions for Remote Access:

To access these databases from an off-campus site, you will be required to login. For students, please use your 7-digit EMPL number (without the "w"). Your password is your last name.


Login: 1234567
Password: smith (not case sensitive)

Other patrons should use their 14-digit barcode assigned by the library.

Login: 23122000012345
Password: smith

Additionally, you can log in with your ConnectND (CND) dotted identifier (ex: john.smith) and password to login to online databases and other remote access library services – this is the same log in you use for Campus Connection.

Anyone who has problems with access, please email the librarian. If you don't know your EMPL # or your patron barcode, we can look it up for you.
