Remote Access Instructions

On weekends and after 5:00 p.m. for remote access problems
please contact 903-223-3100.



If you are having problems, please consult our troubleshooting tips.

  1. Open any browser.  (examples: Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.)
  2. From the library's homepage select the Electronic Resources (Locate) link, then next select the Database link or just type in the address field at the top of the browser.

After selecting a resource off campus you will be asked for your Username and Password (this will authenticate you for a search session).

  1. Username is the first 4 characters of your last name plus the last 4 digits of your Campus Wide I.D. (CWID) number. If your last name is 3 characters long or less, just use those letters. If your name has a special character, such as an apostrophe or space, omit the special character and just use the letters. See the examples below: 

    Jones, John / 123456789  jone6789
    Lee, Kelly / 123456789  Lee6789

    O'Brian, Carol / 123456789  OBri6789

    Password for anyone registered before Summer II 2015 is your CWID number (example: 123456789) . 

    For anyone who registered on or after Summer II 2015 the initial Password is Tamut followed by the last four digits of your CWID number (example Tamut6789).

  2. The authentication process uses "cookies" to remember that you are logged in for that session only. Once you close the browser, your session will terminate. It will be necessary to log in for each session.
  3. Self-Reset Password instructions.
