As a Wyoming resident you have access to the UW Libraries, but not the on-line scholarly databases. A temporary guest ID is not available. However, there are some alternatives to gain access to some of this information.
- Alumni of the University of Wyoming can gain access to a select set of databases graciously provided by the UW Alumni Association. Although you must be an alumnus of UW to get access, you do not have to be a member of the alumni association. This library guide will instruct you on how to gain access.
- Access to databases is available to any category of patron at the public computer terminals at Coe Library, as well as the other branch libraries of the university in Laramie. Patrons can browse the databases for the information they need.
- If you are a patron of you local Wyoming county or community library, some very good databases are available from the Wyoming State Library. These databases are separate from the university libraries. The website is http://gowyld.net. Depending on the database that you are trying to access, you may be required to log in using your Wyoming library card information. Please check with your local library for further information.
In addition to the databases, Wyoming residents may borrow books from the University Libraries. For people who reside in Albany County it is not a problem to directly check out books, but for residents of other counties this can be problematic based on distance and weather. In these cases we recommend that patrons go through their local library and use interlibrary loan. There will be a small fee for this service from your local library.
