LabArchives: Logging in

The UW-Madison LabArchives service is tied to the campus identity management system and requires that you log in with your NetID/password.

Important: If you are using a shared computer, such as a lab computer, computer kiosk, or even someone else’s laptop, be sure to log-out of any prior browser session (NetID Login Service - Logout Procedure ) before you begin the steps below. 

You can access the NetID log-in screen for the service a number of ways:
  • Direct link at:

  • Bookmark this URL in your browser exactly as it appears above (the URL changes once you hit enter).

  • Direct link from the "Existing Account Log-in" button at:

  • Link from the LabArchives site at: (This is also the URL that appears when you are logged in to your UW-Madison LabArchives account.) The log-in screen you will see depends on whether you are on campus or off-campus.


    If you are on a UW-Madison campus network, you will be guided to a log-in screen with a drop-down list of higher education institutions. Select University of Wisconsin-Madison from this list.

    If you are a visitor to UW-Madison and/or do not have a NetID, select the option, “I'm just visiting this institution and want to login directly through the LabArchives site.”


    If you are not on a campus network, you will be guided to a different log-in screen with a drop-down list of higher education institutions. Do NOT select "create new account" (This will create an account outside the UW-Madison LabArchives site.) Instead, select University of Wisconsin-Madison from the drop-down list under "Select your institution."
