Occasionally, people have difficulty successfully logging in to the proxy server to gain on- or off-campus access to library resources. This is usually due to firewall or browser issues. Try these solutions:

  1. Clear browser cache and cookies.
  2. Try another browser or switch to incognito/private browsing mode
  3. Start your search from https://libproxy.uww.edu:9443/login?url=http://www.uww.edu/library
  4. Try using Citrix to access a virtual desktop
  5. Try using the campus Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  6. Contact your system administrator to determine if they may be blocking VPN or proxy access.
  • Go to http://gateway.uww.edu and log in with your campus Net-ID.
  • Select Use Light Version.
  • Select Desktops from the top menu.
  • When virtual desktop loads, open a browser and navigate to the Library's web site.
  • More complete instructions and instructions for downloading the full version of the software is available on the blog.
  • Go to http://vpn.uww.edu and log in with your campus Net-ID.
  • You will be prompted to download and install the CISCO AnyConnect software. ICIT has provided detailed instructions for both Mac and PC computers.
  • Once you have installed the software and have started the VPN, you will use a web browser to navigate to the library resources you need. You will still need to reenter your NetID and password when you connect to one of our databases.

If the steps above do not resolve the issue, fill out the Off-Campus Troubleshooting Form so we are able to diagnose the problem.
Or for immediate assistance please contact a reference librarian at (262) 472-1032, by email, or in person at the Andersen Library's Reference Desk or Lenox Library's Circulation Desk.
