Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Many of the library's online resources are subscription databases that are restricted by license agreements to be used only on campus or by current UWA students, faculty and staff. When you use a computer on campus you will automatically have UWA access and can use these databases without a problem. 

From off campus, UWA students, faculty, and staff may use their TigerNet account to access library resources from any Internet connection. 

Step 1 - Obtain your TigerNet Account from Information Systems Department in Webb Hall or call their office at (205) 652-3562. 

Step 2 - Go to the Library's Home Page and select the DATABASES  link, then select an electronic database to search. 

NOTE: Links contained on the EBSCO A to Z title list DO NOT FUNCTION FROM OFF CAMPUS LOCATIONS.


Step 3 - You will be prompted to enter your User Name and Password. Enter this information and click the Submit button. You can now access restricted subscription databases from off-campus. The session will last until you turn off your computer or close your browser window. 

Remember only current UWA students, faculty and staff are authorized TigerNet account holders. If you have any questions concerning your TigerNet account please call the Information Systems Help Desk at (205) 652-3562. 

If you have any problems accessing the databases call the library reference desk 205 652-3613 or email the User Services Librarian jupchurch@uwa.edu.
