Off-campus registration to WGSN re-enabled

AS PART OF the rollout of the new hosted eZproxy service, the ability to register a new (and re-activate an inactive) WGSN account from off-campus has been re-enabled – as long as the student authenticates via the Library OneSearch link. Library colleagues will no longer need to mediate the creation or reactivation of WGSN accounts for students who are off-campus.

An updated guide to creating a WGSN account, and guide to managing an existing WGSN account, have also been made available through the listing of the resource in the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch.
