You cannot access them online (other than see basic contact information from your membership record (Address, Phone Number, E-mail, etc).
You should receive an Individual Ordinance Summary report each year (usually around tithing settlement time). If you have not received that recently, ask your ward clerk or membership clerk for a copy. This is not available online either, so you will have to talk to your clerk.

It is encouraged, but I don't know as I'd go so far as the say it "should" happen.

I would use the word "should", since that is what the Tithing Settlement training course repeatedly says:
Slide 15:The ward clerk and his assistants are responsible to print and distribute the ... Individual Ordinance Summaries.
Slide 16:At tithing settlement, each member should receive ... an Individual Ordinance Summary.
You also may want to review section 13.6 of Handbook 1, which says that clerks or bishopric members review the IOS with members each year. It doesn't even use the word "should" -- it simply says that they do review the IOS. That's good enough for me to conclude that reviewing the IOS with members annually is an actual responsibility -- far more than simply "encouraged."A clerk should review the Individual Ordinance Summary with each member before he or she meets with the bishop.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
