Technical Recommendations and Requirements

  • Cookies and JavaScript enabled in your browser
  • A PDF plugin such as Adobe Acrobat Reader 
  • Firewalls: Some school districts and workplaces have firewalls that interfere with our proxy server, the machine that identifies you as a WOU patron to our subscription databases. Contact your network administrator for assistance. Your network or ISP must allow access to ports 2048-2248 (except 2049).
