Accessing Licensed Electronic Resources

Information on accessing licensed electronic resources from off-campus

The UW-Madison Libraries purchase access to many databases and other resources that are made available over the Web. Many of these resources may be found at the UW-Madison Libraries Web Site.

These resources usually involve software licenses, copyright restrictions and other contractual agreements that require them to be restricted to a specific group. This group is often UW-Madison faculty, staff and students only. To access these materials, you will need Internet Access. You will also need your NetID and password so that you can be authenticated as a member of the UW-Madison community.
