If you are a current WUSTL student, faculty, or staff member, you may access it on campus, or off campus via the proxy server.  If you are not affiliated with WUSTL, you are welcome to come to a library on campus and use it.  Just ask for a visitor logon for our computers at the Help Desk of a campus library.  If you come to the main library, Olin, it is on the main floor as you enter the building.
