Question: What AW Library resources are available remotely?

Option 1: VPN

If you can get VPN (ie FortiClient) access through AIT, this will be the most seamless option to using ALL our library resources at home.   That said, we know that VPN access is not an option for all associates. 

Option 2:  Personal Accounts

Several (not all) AW Library resources are available to our associates at home or as mobile apps.  Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a single sign-in to simplify the process.  The alternate method often requires signing up for personal accounts for each resource and keeping track of additional usernames and passwords.

Below is a short list of Library Resources that are available to AW staff at home (or otherwise away from Ascension worksites), along with information about signing up for remote access.

  • PubMed is freely available to anyone with internet access. 
    • However you won't be able to access the majority of our AW subscribed fulltext ejournals without being onsite or using the VPN.
    • PubMed Search Tips

Option 3: Mobile Apps
In addition, several of our Library Resources offer mobile apps.
See the Mobile Apps LibGuide for more info. about specific resources.

Option 4:  Contact Your Librarians
Contact your Ascension Wisconsin Librarians,   Michele Matucheski or Kellee Selden for specific info about accessing the following databases remotely:
