ReferenceUSA is adding a Captcha for people who log in from outside the library. A Captcha is a security measure, and by filling it out, you are essentially proving that you are a real live human being, and not a nasty piece of software trying to access a website for unauthorized purposes. If you are accessing ReferenceUSA from within the library, you won't see the captcha.
