How to: Logging into Databases From Off-Campus: Home

Guidance for how to log into the Nicolet College databases from off-campus

Off Campus Login

It is likely that you will be asked to log in to the proxy regardless of whether you are on or off campus.  You will be taken to a login page. Choose the faculty/staff/students option. On the next screen, enter your Nicolet email. When you are taken to the MyNicolet login page, enter your password and continue as you would to any MyNicolet resource. 

See the instruction sheet below for more information.


Non-Credit Students, Tutors/Non-permanet Staff, Off-Campus Instructional Assistants

If you need access to electronic resources as a non-credit student or as instructional support for Nicolet students, please contact the library.

Off Campus Access Issues

Try these steps if you have trouble accessing databases from off campus: 

  • If you are off campus, your link may need to have a proxy prefix. If you can see the address to the link, look at the beginning of the address to see if it starts with:   If it doesn't start with that, try putting  directly in front of link address. When you click on the complete link, you may then see a login screen requiring the first part of your Nicolet e-mail and associated password.
  • If you are accessing a database via a link in Blackboard or Brightspace, try COPYING the link and then pasting it into the address bar of the browser.
  • Check caps lock and number lock.
  • Make sure you are using the correct username and password.
  • Make sure all popup blockers are off/popups are allowed.
  • Try a different browser. Most databases work well with Chrome or Firefox.
  • Clear browser history. It is a good practice to clear it multiple times.
  • Restart your computer.
