Off-Campus Access



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 XJTLU Authentication Centre platform (Highly recommended)

Login on XJTLU Authentication Centre ensures successful access to most of the Library e-resources, except few special-case databases. Normally, once you try to access Library e-resources remotely, the XJTLU Authentication Centre platform pops out so that you can get user authentication very conveniently. Please refer to Login on XJTLU Authentication Centre platform for details.

2. Login on CARSI-Shibboleth Interface (Supporting for a few resources)

CARIS-Shibboleth/OpenAthens only supports a few library e-resources, so it performs as an alternative and is suggested to use only when the first method fails to support off-campus access. Please kindly check the Login on CARSI-Shibboleth Interface for applied database list.

3. Connect to XJTLU VPN (Backup Method)

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.

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