Off-Campus Access To Library Resources

Off-Campus Access

Access to many UIW Libraries databases, journals, and other electronic resources is limited to current UIW students, faculty, and staff. To access UIW-only resources or content from off-campus, users are asked to verify their UIW status by logging in to Cardinal Apps with their UIW username and password:

Cardinal Apps Login Screen with Username, Password and Remember Me fieldsAfter logging in, valid UIW users have access to all UIW Libraries’ electronic resources until the web browser session is closed. UIW Libraries electronic resources may be freely searched and accessed from on-campus computers or devices connected to the UIW network without logging in.
