For easy access to library electronic resources, always begin at the library web site,  There are special sections for databases and electronic journals and also a search engine that will find articles and ebooks. 

On-Campus Access: All of the links to resources are configured to provide seamless access if you are on-campus.  You can click through without entering a password.

Off-Campus Access:  Clicking a library link from off-campus will open an EZ-Proxy window where you login with your offical WVU login and password.  Only WVU students, faculty and staff have remote access. 

For assistance with your WVU Login, please go to the Office of Information Technology (OIT) website at: There you can activate your account or change your password.

A few specialized databases require registration for an individual account or have other restrictions.  Among them are SciFinder Scholar, MediaMark Reporter, and Clinical Pharmacology.
