Accessing the Libraries' Databases

To access licensed library databases from off campus you will be prompted to login on the Proxy Login page.  A few databases require you to log in to the proxy server even if you are on campus.

Students & Faculty

Log in as you do for MyLeo. If your CWID and password will work to access MyLeo but will not allow access through the proxy server, trying using your CWID with your original birth date as your password or try changing your password.  If you are still unable to log in to to the proxy server contact the Information Technology Support Center at 903-468-6000.


Log in as you would on your work computer using your domain login where your username is LastnameFirstname and a password.  If you do not know/have a domain login please contact the Information Technology Support Center at 903-468-6000.


Web of Science - Heartbleed Bug

Web of Science uses a version of OpenSSL that may have been vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug.  The database vendor indicates that there is no evidence that any customer information has been compromised, but suggests changing your password for Web of Science as a precautionary measure.  Please note:  This will also update your password for EndNote Web.
