Off-Campus Access To Library Resources

Off-Campus Access

While accessing electronic resources via the library’s webpages from off-campus, UIW students, staff and faculty will be prompted to enter UIW network credentials (see image below). Non-affiliated users may still use our search tool to locate resources, but will not be able to view them unless they come to campus and use a guest computer.

Off-campus login screen

  • UIW has a single sign-on for all online functions. Use only the username before the @ sign, do not use or and your usual password.
  • If you are able to log into your UIW email, Cardinal Apps and BlackBoard, but unable to log into the library’s databases to access resources, contact the Reference Desk at 210-829-3835 or email
  • We recommend using Firefox when accessing library databases.
