The Library uses Shibboleth authentication to allow you to log into our online resources using your MWS username and password. We use Shibboleth alongside another system called EZProxy.
On campus a resource provider may not ask you to log in, as you will already be authenticated because you are coming from a campus IP address (provided the Library has paid for a subscription to that resource). When you are off campus, you will need to enter your MWS username and password to access the full-text of a resource. If you start your search from the Library webpages you will be certain you are logged in.
Shibboleth is an alternative to Athens authentication.
