Some publishers offer the option to sign in with your Caltech / IMSS credentials directly on the publisher website. Publisher websites vary, but in general:

  1. Locate the Sign In with Your Institution / Institutional Login button or link. Sometimes you will see them labeled with the terms/phrases like “Login through your institution”, “Federated Login”, or “OpenAthens” 
  2. Select Caltech Library from the dropdown menu.
    1. *NOTE* do not select California Institute of Technology. If you select this, you'll receive an error message. 
  3. You’ll be routed to the IMSS Sign In page. Enter your IMSS username and password. 
  4. If we've licensed the material, you'll be able to access the resource

Example from Elsevier / ScienceDirect:
