    How to Connect to library resources from off campus

    1. At the Murphy Library website, select a database to search.
    2. After you select a database, you will be asked for a username and password.
    3. Students: In the username box, enter your UW-L NetID. Example: lastname.firs
      (Most UW-L NetID user names follow this format: first 8 letters of your last name followed by a dot (.) followed by the first 4 letters of your first name.)
    4. Faculty: In the username box, enter your UW-L NetID. Example: Flastname
      Most Faculty and Staff UW-L NetID user names follow this format: first name initial followed by the last name.)
    5. DO NOT include @students.uwlax.edu or @uwlax.edu as part of your username.
    6. In the password box, enter your UW-L NetID password.
    7. Remember, you will use the exact same user name and login as you use to login to D2L and in GCA Computer Labs - your NetID.

    Note:

    If you have an accurate UW-L NetID, you should be able to access library databases. The library does not control UW-L NetID accounts or passwords, but does use the system to provide access to databases.

    If you are having difficulties gaining access to our licensed databases please refer to our Troubleshooting Tips.

    For assistance with your UW-L NetID, please contact the ITS Support Desk at 785-8774.
