Many of the Libraries' resources are available online, 24/7! However, most of the databases, electronic journals, streaming media, and e-books are restricted to current UW or Cascadia faculty, students and staff, using a properly affiliated UW NetID. UW Canvas, Panopto, and the Campus Library Group Study Room Reservation system are also accessed with this credential. Temporary or Sponsored NetID's, as well as UW or Cascadia Alumni, Retirees, or former employees will not have the same access.
The most common issue users have accessing restricted online resources is using a browser with expired cache information. Clearing your entire cache, including all cookies and site data, will typically resolve most UW NetID authentication issues. If you continue to have issues accessing resources, please see the links below for additional troubleshooting information, or call the Student Technology Consultant on duty at the Campus Library's Computing Help Desk at 425.352.3145 during all the hours the Library is open.
If you find a link that doesn't work please let us know.
When you are off-campus, click on any A-Z database link, and you should be prompted to login with your UW NetID and password.
If log in is successful, you will be redirected to the resource, and you may see "offcampus.lib.washington.edu" in the URL.
If you frequently access UW restricted resources from off-campus, you may want to install the Proxy Bookmarklet,
Try to use your browser's forward and back buttons whenever possible to move around.
Do not use the home button, your favorites or bookmarks (unless you are using them with the proxy bookmarklet).

Land Acknowledgment: The University of Washington Bothell & Cascadia College Campus Library occupies Land that has been inhabited by Indigenous Peoples since time immemorial. Specifically, this campus is located on Sammamish Land from which settler colonists forcibly removed Coast Salish Peoples to reservations in the mid-19th century. Today, descendants of the Sammamish are members of several Coast Salish communities.
