Off Campus Access

Off-Campus Access to Databases and Online Resources?

Subscription databases and some online sites are only available to WOU students, faculty and staff. An individual’s Pawprint username and password authorizes access to the restricted links.

Searching in the catalog, Summit, library Web pages, and most external links are available to everyone.

 

You can access your H drive and specialized programs, including Photoshop, SPSS, SAS and Dreamweaver from off campus by using WOU’s terminal servers.


Need Your Password?

If you don’t remember your Pawprint, use the Account Lookup utility.

When you see this screen:

Proxy Server Login Screen

Enter your Pawprint username and password

To access your files stored on the campus network (My Documents, public_html) and applications such as Microsoft Office, SPSS, SAS, Adobe Creative Suite, or Dreamweaver, use Windows Remote Desktop to access the WOU terminal servers. Instructions (PDF)

Technical Recommendations and Requirements

To have full functionality when using library resources, we recommend:

  • Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer latest version. Mac users: please use Firefox or Chrome, rather than Safari.
  • Cookies and JavaScript enabled on your computer and in your Web browser
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader  (a free helper/plug-in application)
  • Firewalls: Some school districts and workplaces have firewalls that interfere with our proxy server, the machine that identifies you as a WOU patron to our subscription databases. Contact your network administrator for assistance. Your network or ISP must allow access to ports 2048-2248 (except 2049).

If you need assistance or experience problems, please contact us at 503-838-8899 or email libweb@wou.edu
