Off Campus Access


Students should be able to obtain access to most of the library's online databases from off campus. If you find a database or record that you want to see, click on it. A box will pop up asking for your UVaWise ID and password.  That will be the same as your email ID and password. If you have problems using your password call the Computer HelpDesk at 328-4509.


In order to get access now faculty members can use their NetBadge ID and password or UVa Computing Account ID and password. If you don’t have or don’t remember your NetBadge information you need to activate your UVA Computing Account.

To activate your UVa Computing account you need to visit the UVa accounts portal. Once on that page you need to complete Step 1: Learn about Responsible Computing & Security. Once you complete and pass the quiz on computer security, you will receive your UVa computing password. Your ID will be the same as the id portion of your email address (the characters before the @ symbol). Because we already have UVa IDs, step 2 in unnecessary.
