Q. Can I access Smith's databases if I'm JYA or out of the country?

Most of Smith’s online databases can be accessed from foreign countries.

  • Exceptions include: all FirstSearch databases (WorldCat, etc.)

Unable to connect from overseas?

  • Your browser may time out before connecting.
  • The likely cause: Network traffic and the number of nodes that must be traversed.
  • Any settings affecting timeouts need to be adjusted at your end, not our end.
  • There have also been reports of problems because of firewall restrictions placed on computers at the access site. If this is the case, please try to access from a home computer or a public library.
