College of Distance Education (CDE) Research Resources: OFF-CAMPUS ACCESS

This Research Guide (libGuide) is intended for use by College of Distance Education (CDE) students. Its a guide to library resources for students who are studying offsite.

Accessing Resources from Off-Campus


Library Subscription Databases


Authorized NWC users (resident or CDE students, faculty and staff) can access subscription databases from off-campus. The Naval War College purchases licenses to provide access to these resources and authentication is required. When you open a database link from our list of subscribed databases, the authentication screen shown below will appear. Login using EITHER CAC authentication (using your email certificate) OR your NWC BlackBoard username and password. 



Your authentication will stay active until you log out of your browser session, allowing you to easily access any of our subscription databases.

Please contact a Reference Librarian if you need further assistance or email

**NWC Alumni:  If you have an active CAC, you may register to access a subset of library databases at Lifelong Learning Resources for NWC Alumni. For further assistance, email
