It will also let you:

- Access wireless connections on campus
Connect from Off-Campus
Most online resources, including eJournals, and eBooks, are restricted (marked with ) and are available only to current UW students, staff, and faculty members.
“Connecting from Off-Campus” explains the steps for accessing these resources from off-campus.
Install the proxy bookmarklet (a button that gives you instant access to all of the UW Libraries resources through the Proxy server). Rather than backtracking to login off-campus, this button allows you to login immediately, and returns you to the Web site you were on.
For good-practice guidelines regarding the use of electronic resources, see “Responsible Use of Electronic Resources.”
