I can’t access my online resources

Two most common reasons people are not able to access their membership

Are you logged in to the website?

If you have created an account, and entered the membership code, you will then need to login to access resources.

Use the link “Login/Create Account” at the top right of the home page to access the login page.


Have you activated your membership?

If you have created an account, but do not see the membership resources on your account page, it may be that your membership has not been activated. To activate your membership, you will need to enter your membership code.

Instructions for entering a membership code AFTER creating your account

1. On the top right of the webpage, click the “Login/Create Account” link.

2. Enter your username and password in the space provided. You will be directed to the “My Account” page.

2. On the My Account page, click the link for “Enter Membership Code.” (As indicated by the red arrow in Figure 1)

Go through this checklist to troubleshoot why you may not be able to access online resources. Each item also has a separate FAQ that provides more information. These can be access from the main FAQ

  3. If you have an account, have you logged in to the website? Use the link to Login on the top menu
  4. When you login to My Account, do you see the links to the resources? If not links are visible, you have not activated a membership.

I am a student at college. Where would I get a membership code?

Students receive their Membership Code from their course instructor. You may need to bring your text, or text and workbook in to verify that you have purchased the set and qualify for the membership.

In some colleges, the Membership Codes will be distributed through the bookstore, where the text and workbook are sold.

If you are unable to find out who has the Membership Codes at your college, please contact us and we can help you to find them.
