Working Off Campus

Databases and the full text articles they contain can be accessed both on and off-campus. When off-campus, you'll be prompted to log into the proxy server with your UWW Net-ID and password (same as your UWW e-mail & D2L access). If you have issues with logging into the proxy server, please check our Troubleshooting page for known issues. You may also want to consider using VPN (Virtual Private Network) in order to access campus and library services.


Restricted Access

UWW access only = Access to licensed resources is restricted to UW-W students, faculty, and staff.


General Resources

Research@UWW UWW access only - Find "everything" (articles, books, & more)
This discovery tool searches multiple resources simultaneously (articles from many disciplines, books, ebooks, videos, digital resources, government documents, etc.), or you can change from searching "everything" to articles only or the local catalog only, i.e., UWW's books, media, government documents, and more.

Google Scholar
Google Scholar can help you find both books and articles, but if you use Google Scholar from off campus, configure the settings to use Andersen Library's full text subscription access.

Articles & Databases by Title   UWW access only
Find articles relating to your research topic from the Library's article databases.

Reference Universe   UWW access only
Find entries in reference books (encyclopedias, handbooks, etc.), whether online or in print. Helpful for understanding unfamiliar terminology!

Citation Linker   UWW access only
If you already have an article citation, type in the citation information and link to a menu of options for finding the full text of the article.

Journal Holdings List  UWW access only
Search for a particular journal, magazine or newspaper by title. The Library has access to thousands of titles, some online and some not.
