For almost all of our databases (and other online resources), there is no specific login needed.  If you're on-campus, the database will recognize that and let you through directly. If you're off-campus, you'll need to either use one of the proxied links to the resource (available on our Databases page) or use one of the other means for off-campus access. The proxy server uses your access.caltech username and password.

There are a few resources that require you to create a special login (like SciFinder) or where you need to contact us for a password (it will be noted in the entry on the Databases page for that resource).
