Using LexisNexis From Off-Campus

It has come to our attention that sometimes when trying to access LexisNexis from off-campus brings up the company’s login prompt, even after logging in through the library’s proxy server. Don’t worry, we’re working with the folks at LexisNexis to resolve the issue. In the meantime, LN’s tech people have recommended clearing the history and clicking on the link for LexisNexis again. I’ve also noticed that just going back to the library’s website using the back button and trying again has worked as well.

If you encounter this problem, please let us know, either by calling the Reference Desk at 262.472.1032, sending us an e-mail, or commenting on the blog. We hope to have this issue taken care of as soon as possible.

    In other scenarios where you don’t want the websites to record your IP address you can go through a proxy server. Going through proxy server will always register proxy’s IP address and not your client computer’s. Using proxy server will protect you from any internet dangers and it’s often very useful in protecting you and your computers identity. Day-by-day web proxy usage is increasing. While you are browsing through certain web pages, there is every possibility that your personal information might go out of computer into wrong hands. A proxy server will block any such hidden request for personal information in first place itself.

    There are various companies which are using proxy servers to improve network capacity and speed as proxies can also be configured to cache new objects/website they go through. It really doesn’t matter if you are at school or college or even home, you can still use free web proxy to hide your important and personal information. Caching is an important feature of proxy server and will come into picture when a new website is opened for the very first time. If another user opens this same website, then the proxy server will pull the website out of its cache to save up on time.
