If you are here, you're wondering why you sometimes have to log into twice to some library resources.
The college login and password that you use not only for the library but also for your online courses and MyESC, is what gets you into the database itself. It tells the database that you're a member of this college, so you're allowed to access the content.
The second, separate login that you have to create with the database is so you have your own personal profile and storage area within the database.
It's pretty much like how when you live in an apartment building, you have one key that opens the door to the building that you share with other tenants, and you have another key that opens the door to your own apartment.
