WAM access

**Edit @ 6:30 pm** The off campus access screen is back to being pretty; please take a look at the office campus access webpage for screenshots. Please contact the Library if you have any problems.

*Edit @ 10:30 am* WAM access is back online, but it looks a little wonky. Functionality over beauty wins right now. We are continuing to work on the issue.

Unfortunately, with the launch of the new catalog look, off-campus access to full-text materials was accidentally disabled. We are working to fix this ASAP.

Certificate Error & Remote Access

A number of patrons have been receiving a certificate error when attempting to use the Library’s Remote Access system (WAM).


The certificate was renewed by LSU-Baton Rouge but is not propigating properly for some reason. To install the certificate, click on the from the following link. And then choose Open and then Install. Accept any other default settings. *Please note that this certificate only works with Internet Explorer & not Firefox.*


Once installation is complete (takes about 10 seconds), attempt the off-campus link from the Library’s webpages again.

~EDIT~ This issue is now resolved thanks to the efforts of the IT staff.

Off Campus Access

Off-Campus Access Available

Off Campus Access to the catalog is available once again. Thanks for your patience.

Tutorials for Full-Text Journals

Molly Knapp has completed a Windows Media Video tutorial for accessing full-text journals via the Libraries’ catalog, Innopac. Don’t forget there is also a video for accessing materials remotely.

VPN Changes

The LSUHSC Office of Computer Services provides secure remote access through a VPN (virtual private network) . Last summer, a new VPN client, SSLVPN was rolled out.

On July 29th, users who are still using the old VPN client, SecuRemote, will no longer have access to the Library’s catalog, Innopac. If you have SecuRemote (old client) installed, it must be uninstalled before installing SSLVPN (new client) (directions are available). Please contact your local computer supporter for more information.

Barcode & PIN (WAM) access will be unaffected.
