If you have ever tried to access library databases, electronic journals, or other UW-restricted content from off-campus, you may have found it more difficult than it should be. Make life easier by downloading our proxy bookmarklet.
The proxy bookmarklet will let you access UW-restricted content with the click of a button.
Now, if we could only make all our content available online...
Knovel (a database with almost 2000 electronic engineering reference books) has improved its interactive tools that allow users to analyze and manipulate data.
The official announcement includes examples of how you can use these interactive tools, and if you find you need more help you can sign up for one of their free webinars.
You can access Knovel from the Engineering Library's list of databases. (Remember to log in for off-campus access if you're not in the library.)
