How To Access Articles and Library Materials from Home

If you are a currently enrolled UW Colleges student, you can access the library's electronic resources and online databases from home.

  1. Begin your search for electronic resources and online databases as you would on campus by visiting the library's website.
  2. Before you can access licensed material (databases, journal articles), you will be prompted to log in to the "proxy server" with your username and password. This is the same username and password you use for email or D2L.
  3. After you log in, you will have access to all licensed online resources until you close your browser. You will be prompted to log in again each time you begin a new session in your internet browser.
  4. If you have trouble accessing electronic resources and online databases from home, contact a librarian.
