Sciwheel typically requires users to log into their accounts from a campus IP address once every 120 days io retain institutional access. If you are working exclusively remotely, here are two ways to maintain your institutional access (don't worry--all of your citations will still be there!)
1) Sign in via a Sciwheel link on the library website. It takes you through the proxy server, and you will authenticate with UNC's single sign-on (SSO) using your ONYEN and password (as for other resources from off-campus), so you won't need your access extended manually.
2) If you see an 'x days left' message or counter pop up and you're not able to sign in from campus, sign in via a Sciwheel link on the library website). If that doesn't work, message Sciwheel's customer support directly using the internal blue and white chat button at the bottom right corner of your your browser window (you may not see this if you are blocking ads or trackers), OR just email them and they will be happy to help you keep your institutional subscription active. In the meantime, you will NOT lose access to your account or to any citations in your account.
