Setting Up Your Browser for Remote Access to Online Databases

B.U. members may have off-campus access to the subscribed databases. Millennium's Web Access Management (WAM) module enables users to access all of the Library's web-based subscriptions through Millennium's authentication mechanism.

Users will be able to benefit from this facility upon fulfillment of the 3 requirements listed below. After that, when you click on a link to a database or e-journal, you will have to enter your name and barcode number.
  • You must have a valid library record.
  • You must have a Library barcode number.
  • You must configure your internet browser for using WAM (Web Access Management).
