Access to Electronic Resources: Off-Campus

Off-Campus Access to Electronic Resources

The Library website provides seamless access to all the electronic resources 24/7. When you click a link from the databases page, or a link to articles, e-books, or e-journals via JCU Discovery, you will be prompted to log in to EZproxy with your JCU username and password (see image below). After logging in, you will be automatically redirected to the resource you want to use.

Once you are logged in, you will have access to the electronic resources while your browser session is open. If you close the browser and then restart it, you will have to log in again.

If you are logged in your JCU email account you will not have to authenticate yourself again.
