ACCESS TO E-RESOURCES

Authentication required: Please note that due to terms and conditions in licensing agreements, access to certain electronic resources (e-resources), are restricted to registered students, current faculty and staff of The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine. 

Authenticate at UWILinc  http://uwin-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=STA& using "Sign in" at top right of page.

Off-campus access:

Off-campus access to most Library subscribed e-resources - e-journals, e-books, databases - is available via our remote authentication service. Students and staff must login to be authenticated to access the resources from off campus. Once you login and remain within the same browser window you should not need to login again within the same session. Note that when you try to access a subscribed resource from off campus, you will be prompted to login to the system.

Students can login using their UWI ID number as the username, and the password is the same as used to login to the my.uwi.edu portal. From the my.uwi.edu portal students can click on the UWIlinC button to be taken to the library’s search engine for locating e-resources.

Staff members need to enable their account and reset their password. Staff members can request a copy of the instructions to do so. Please note that the password reset must take place when you are logged on to a computer located within the SAUWI campus network domain. Activation will not work from off-campus.       Login to the libraries' resources at UWIlinC after account has been enabled and password reset.

On Campus Access

Students, staff and faculty of The UWI, St. Augustine Campus can access the electronic resources from any computer workstation connected to the University's local area  or wireless network i.e. in the Library, Computer Laboratories, Faculty/Department offices and various other locations on the campus. Most subscriptions to these resources are supported by IP authentication. Once you are a member of The UWI and on a computer within the domain uwi.edu, a username and password is not required to access e-resources. Login is necessary for access to the Course Reserves service managed by the Library.  

Note: Whether you are on campus or off campus you should be able to discover the library’s e-resources using services available on the library’s website, such as UWIlinC, the A-Z listing of databases, the e-books listing and the library catalogue (OPAC).

Virtual Private Network (available for staff only)

Staff can access the campus network via the Campus Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. This service requires registration, installation and configuration of software on your computer by Campus IT Services.
