Connecting from Off-Campus


The Cornette Library provides access to many databases -- citation databases, full-text journals, library catalogs, electronic reserves, etc. -- which are available to anyone using the library on campus. However, we also make them available to WTAMU students, faculty, and staff from off-campus, either from home or work.

To go to any of these databases, just follow the links on our Web pages. You will be automatically routed to a login page; you don't have to do anything extra to find it. When requested, enter the login information below and you will be identified as a member of the WTAMU community and allowed access.

AOL users: This system does not work well with AOL's proprietary browser. Once you are connected to AOL, you need to minimize their browser and use a browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera or Safari instead.
