If the page you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, and you’re presently off-campus, then you should get you immediate access to the resource once you’ve logged in with your UBITName and password. Your UBITName is your University at Buffalo Information Technology username, which is usually given to you when you arrive on campus.
