Q. An e-resource website says it supports "mobile pairing." What is that?


"Mobile Pairing" is a service offered by some electronic publishers allowing you to tie your mobile device to Georgetown's institutional subscription for a set period of time. This allows you to access the library's subscribed content on your mobile device off-campus and without logging in through the library with your NetID.

Mobile pairing is accomplished either through placing a cookie on your device or by linking your free, personal account on the publisher's website to Georgetown's institutional subscription. It is currently offered by a few publishers, including the American Mathematical Society and Taylor & Francis.

If you choose to use mobile pairing, please consult the publisher's website for instructions, limitations, and conditions. Remember that your access to the subscription content is tied to Georgetown University Library's subscriptions and you will not have access to content that is outside of those subscriptions.

If you have further questions, please let us know through the e-Resource Problem Report form.
