GML's Lib Guide and EZ Proxy

As of 2020, all content that was previously on this page has been moved to the GML LibGuide. The LibGuide is accessible to all users associated with WRAIR and NMRC. Bookmark the LibGuide to obtain the latest information on library resources, services, trainings, forms to request Interlibrary Loan and literature searches, and other topics of interest.

For users working from home, while traveling, or at one of our overseas facilities, an EZ Proxy user ID and password will be required to access our subscriptions (i.e. full-text journal articles, databases, and other e-resources behind a paywall). To request login credentials, please fill out the EZ Proxy Access Request form. Please note that you must have cookies enabled on your browser for EZ Proxy to work. Be aware too that when using EZ Proxy while on a VPN, you may experience lag times in loading web pages. You do not need EZ Proxy credentials to access and view the GML LibGuide.
