Yes. Since the university implemented the additional security measure of "two-factor authentication" (or "2FA"), the majority of UW benefited employees must now access library resources from off-campus following the procedure established by UW IT. Not all employees are required to use 2FA, nor are students currently not  of the 2FA requirement. These two groups will be able to access content from off-campus using only their UW username and password.

For more information about the 2FA policy and how to set up your access, read the information at this link to the UW IT knowledge base:

Any problems with accessing library databases that occur when proper 2FA procedures have been followed should be reported to or by using the EMAIL widget on the UW Libraries homepage.
