Library & Database Access for Short-Term Researchers

Library


Post-doctoral fellows, visiting and research scholars, and research assistants who are entitled to access library resources must activate their library account by following these steps:

 

  • The Chair of the Department, Departmental Assistant, or a member of Senior Administration must fill out the Technology Solutions Centre new account form. Both a Windows (Campus Network Access) account and an Email (Outlook) account must be requested in order to remotely access library databases. 

 

  • The researcher must take a completed ID request form to Student Central with a piece of photo ID in order to obtain a University of Winnipeg identification card, which doubles as a library card. This form is typically provided by HR, but may be filled out by the Chair of the Department, Departmental Assistant, or a member of Senior Administration if necessary.

 

  • Once the UWinnipeg ID card has been obtained, the researcher must bring it to the Library Circulation Desk to activate their library account. 

 

Any questions or requests for special arrangements can be directed to the Circulation Supervisor, Laura Butler.

Please note that offsite database access is restricted to users with a valid network account. The Library has no role in determining who is eligible for a network account, nor are we able to make exceptions due to both licensing and technological requirements.
