There are two ways to use mobile devices with databases, and some databases use both:
Some use special websites that start with "m" (m.gmu.edu) or end with extension "mobi" and still others have an automatic redirect that recognizes when you are accessing the site with a mobile device (Ebscohost).
Not all databases are mobile-ready, but this InfoGuide will point to some resources that offer a mobile interface.
If you are using the mobile applications of Mason databases off-campus and not using MasonNet wireless, you will be asked to enter your Mason ID/password at the proxy prompt. Use the links and instructions in this guide to access the mobile interfaces.
Mobile pairing (also called vouchering) allows users to “pair” their various web browsing devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops) with an institution’s network to access resources remotely.
