Troubleshooting

Due to license agreement restrictions off-campus access to the Terteling Library's subscription databases is limited to current College of Idaho students, faculty and staff.

Off-campus access is provided through Web Access Management, a component of the library catalog system.  At the Web Access Management Login prompt enter your name and complete barcode (found on your College ID Card).If you are a current College of Idaho student, faculty or staff member and receive a "403 Forbidden" error message when logging in, there may be a problem with your library record (you may not be in the library's computer system, the library system may not have the correct barcode in your record, etc.).  Please contact the library staff.

Note that when used through this off-campus proxy server, some of the links between databases (linking from ProQuest to text in JSTOR, for example) may not work properly. In some cases you will need to access the linked database from this page (rather than from the other database) to reach this text.
