Technology Resources at the UWB/CC Campus Library

Using your UW NetID to access resources from off-campus

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.  Temporary or Sponsored NetID's, as well as UW or Cascadia Alumni, Retirees, or former employees will not have the same access.

To use the proxy for off-campus access:

  • 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).

UW Students - Use Husky OnNet to connect to Library resources from off-campus

UW Students may be eligible to use the UW's Husky OnNet VPN service for connecting to Library Resources remotely instead of using the Libraries proxy service.

Cascadia Students - Use Cascadia's "Views" to connect to Library resources from off-campus

Cascadia Students may be eligible to use Cascadia's Virtual Remote Desktop (View) Access for connecting to Library Resources remotely without using a UW NetID.
