  Can I use VPN for proxy access?

No. Close your VPN connection before using the library proxy server. Using both VPN and the proxy server at the same time may result in the inability to access most library resources from off-campus.

  Can I use Citrix for access to the Libraries’ resources from off campus?

If you are logged into Citrix you will not need to go through the proxy server to connect to the libraries’ resources. You may encounter issues with saving and printing documents, so we recommend not using Citrix to access the libraries’ resources. Instead, we recommend that you connect to the proxy server through an up-to-date internet browser. 

  How do I get access to the libraries’ resources from the VA?

Medical College faculty and staff located at the VA who are not on the MCW network need to use the library's proxy server.

  I’m an alumnus/alumna. Do I have access?

Unfortunately, alumni do not qualify for remote access unless you have a current enrollment, employment or teaching affiliation with MCW.

Alumni are always welcome to visit the Library in person. On-site users have full access to all resources.

  Can I pay to have remote access via the proxy server?

We are unable to accept payment for proxy access.
