UT users can link to Mango through the Libraries’ Articles & Databases link (see Modern Foreign Languages & Literatures).
First-time users must create a user profile to use Mango. Choose “sign up” and then choose a language to get to the profile set-up area. A user profile allows you to keep track of your progress and test results.
