Please note: Children’s Wisconsin recently made a security software change and access to many of MCW Libraries’ electronic resources from the Children’s Wisconsin network is currently blocked. MCW Libraries is aware of the situation and is currently testing new models of access. To access resources blocked on the Children's Wisconsin network, login with your OpenAthens credentials, register for an OpenAthens account, or view more information.
MCW Libraries is here to support you wherever you may be working. Librarians are available during business hours to answer your questions via phone, email or chat, and nearly all of our electronic content is available to you 24/7 from anywhere.
MCW Libraries resources are available anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
While on campus and using the MCW, Froedtert Staff or Children's Wisconsin staff network to access the internet, connecting to MCW Libraries subscription resources like databases and journals is seamless because the resources recognize your IP address.
To connect to resources from off-campus, start out at the library's publicly accessible homepage or at any of our LibGuides. If you click a link to a subscription resource, you will be prompted to login to OpenAthens. Those with MCW accounts can use their account information to login. Other users, including Children's Wisconsin and Froedtert Health employees need to register for an account.
For more information, visit the Connect from Off-Campus tab.
MCW IS installs Always-On VPN on MCW owned and managed software. Even if you are off-campus and have the VPN running, you still need to log into OpenAthens to access our subscription resources. You will be prompted to login to OpenAthens when you click on links to subscription resources on the MCW Libraries webpages.
This form is for Children's, Froedtert Health and Wisconsin Diagnostic Laboratories Staff, or volunteer clinical faculty, adjunct faculty, emeritus faculty, and students in joint degree programs.
After verification of your status is received, you will receive an email with instructions on how to set up your OpenAthens account.
