An introduction to library databases

Proxy access

Off campus access to most of the library's e-content is managed through our EZ-Proxy service, which allows authenticated users to get to the database content as if they were on campus. EZ-Proxy authentication is made with your WMU Email credentials. In other words, you will need a WMU email account to access these databases remotely -- from virtually anywhere in the world with an internet account.

User names and passwords

Some databases require individual user names and passwords. In the case of Bimco Bulletin, IMO Docs, and the Rosetta Stone online language learning program, the library staff will assign accounts for new students and employees, or upon request. With Lloyd's List, users will need to set up their own account from on campus, choosing their own user names and passwords, and once they have an account they will be able to access LLoyd's from anywhere --until they graduate or terminate employment.

Shared user accounts

A handful of databases and e-journals require a single user name and password for the whole university to share. Users requiring access to these resources will need to make a request from library staff. The passwords change frequently.
