Remote Access Instructions

OFF-CAMPUS ACCESS

After selecting a resource off campus you will be asked for your Username and Password (this will authenticate you for a search session).  Use your EagleID.

  1. Username is the first 4 characters of your last name plus the last 4 digits of your Campus Wide I.D. (CWID) number. If your last name is 3 characters long or less, just use those letters. If your name has a special character, such as an apostrophe or space, omit the special character and just use the letters. See the examples below: 

    Jones, John / 123456789 à jone6789
    Lee, Kelly / 123456789 à Lee6789

    O'Brian, Carol / 123456789 à OBri6789

    Intial Password The initial Password is Tamut followed by the last four digits of your CWID number (example Tamut6789).

  2. Lastly, the authentication process uses "cookies" to remember that you are logged in for that session only. Once you close the browser, your session will terminate. It will be necessary to log in for each session.
     
  3. Self-Reset Password instructions.  Recommended to do this sooner rather than later.  Then you can self reset your password  when you forget off campus and or during the weekend.
