Remote Access to Library Research Databases E-journals, and E-books
The library provides access to numerous research databases, e-journals, and e-books to support the information needs and research activities of faculty, currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students, and staff of the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies.
In order to provide access to these resources which are produced by private companies, the library is obligated to sign a contract known as a license agreement which governs how a resource may or may not be used and accessed. Due to terms and conditions of our licensing agreements with our database vendors, access to certain databases is restricted to registered students and current faculty and staff of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.
Remote access to these resources is therefore restricted to the above categories of users and is not freely available to any other persons. Access to these resources is as follows:
On Campus: from any computer workstation connected to the University's local area network i.e. in the Library, Computer Labs, offices on campus, Halls of Residence etc. This means that if you are on campus and using the wireless network you will still be required to login using our EzProxy authentication.
You will be asked to enter your UWI staff or UWI student ID number and your CAVEHILL Student or staff domain password. If you experience problems with your off-campus login, please contact the Campus IT Services for assistance. Off Campus Access
