Off-Campus Access

Overview

 

Since almost all XJTLU Library e-resources need user authentication, they can only be used within XJTLU’s IP addresses using the XJTLU network. As a result, if your device is connected to the campus network, you can directly access all Library e-resources. However, if you are off-campus, you will have to follow certain steps to access Library e-resources.

There're THREE off-campus access methods: 

1. Login on EZproxy Interface (Highly recommended)

EZproxy ensures successful access to most of the Library e-resources, except few special-case databases. Considering about convenience, EZproxy is most recommended to apply when you are off-campus. Please refer to Login on EZproxy Interface for details.

2. Connect to XJTLU VPN (For special cases)

After connecting to XJTLU VPN, you may access Library e-resources just as on-campus. Please kindly note that databases with  on Databases A-Z list are only accessible via XJTLU VPN. Please refer to Connect to XJTLU VPN for XJTLU VPN User Guide.

3. Login on CARIS-Shibboleth Interface (Backup applied for a few resources)

CARIS-Shibboleth only supports a few library e-resources, so it performs as a backup and is suggested to use only when the first two methods fail to support off-campus access. Please kindly check the Login on CARSI-Shibboleth Interface for applied database list. 

You may view details of any method by clicking the corresponding tab at the left column.
