Landing pages for articles and journals can be tricky. Images like the ones below may look familiar:

2. Article from boundary 2, Vol. 48. Issue 1

Login Through the Libraries
WU Libraries is the actual subscriber; therefore, you need to let the journals know you are using the Libraries' subscription. There are a couple of ways to do this:
When you are searching from off-campus, "Proxy Server" essentially allows you to use resources that are restricted to use on computers with campus IP addresses. Since the eJournals are subscription access, logging on through this portal lets the publishers know you are a legitimate user of the WU Libraries subscription. Once logged in, you should not have to login again for the rest of your searching session (or until you turn off your computer or close your browser).
You'll know you are 'proxied' when you see 'libproxy.wustl.edu' in the first part of the URL in your browser's address bar.
If you type in a new URL in the browser’s address box you will leave the proxy service.
