Off-Campus Access to Electronic Resources

Off-campus (including Wireless) access to most online databases is available through a proxy server. The proxy server will prompt you to logon using your Law Center network user name and password, which is also used to print. Some materials are password protected for both on or off-campus access. In this case, passwords are available through your PAWS account, under “Library Resources, Password Information.” For additional assistance, contact Kevin Baggett,, or call 225/578-4041.
