Logging in From Off Campus

All currently registered UW Oshkosh faculty, staff and students may access library databases from off campus. Start from the library homepage, and either enter your search terms into the main search box, or choose a specific database from the green database box (highlighted in red), such as Academic Search Complete.

Accessing databases off-campus


If you have selected a specific database from the "Research Databases" dropdown menu, you will be presented with the screen shown below. You'll need to enter your NetID and password to continue. Note: you will also see this screen if you attempt to access articles via Search@UW, after running a search.



I still can't log in to the databases! Help!
