J.E. & L.E. Mabee Library

REMOTE CONNECTION TO THE UIW MABEE LIBRARY RESOURCES

How do you access the library resources from off campus?

The Mabee Library has implemented EZProxy, an easier method of accessing library databases and online journals off-campus. You will no longer have to download a software client to your computer in order to access resources. If you use these resources from an on-campus computer, your computer is identified as being on the UIW network and you can access the resources seamlessly. EZProxy allows your off-campus computer to be identified as part of the UIW network.

EZProxy will determine if you are a current student, faculty member or staff member with the University of the Incarnate Word as a way to view e-resources.

How does it work?

With PrimoSearch

  • You search for an online resource using PrimoSearch
  • When you click on an online article name or if you select online text, you will be given a list of databases.
  • When you click on the database name, you will be prompted for your UIW Network (Cardinal Email) username and password. 
  • Once this information is authenticated by the EZproxy service, you will be able to open the article for viewing. 
  • You will only need to authenticate once during your searching session.

Direct Method

  • Access the library web site, click on Find Articles and Databases
  • From this page you can select Subject Areas or go directly to the Alphabetic List.
  • When you locate the desired database, click on the name. 
  • At that point, EZProxy will prompt you for your username and password.
  • You can now search and access articles within the database.
  • It works similarly with the Journal List.
