Getting Access to UW-Madison Resources Off-Campus

This short tutorial will help you gain access to journals, e-books, and health-science databases in off-campus locations. In order to begin, you must have a valid UW-Madison NetID. If you do not, follow this tutorial to activate your NetID. If you need assistance contact DoIT at 608-264-4357, or visit IT's Get Help page for more options.

Step 1: Select the database, journal, or e-book you would like to view in the UW-Madison library system. 

This is a screengrab of the availability of a journal. The text circled in red is the "request a scan" and "request for pickup" buttons 

Step 2: After clicking on the resource you will be prompted to login with your NetID. Follow the link that says, "Login With Your NetID."

This is a screengrab of the NetID login page that will come after the request page. Circled in red is the button that reads "NetID Sign in."

Step 3: Finally you will be presented with the campus NetID page. Enter your NetID username and password. If you need help using activating your NetID click the button at the bottom of the page under the "Need Help?" section. After logging in you will be re-directed back to the resource page.
