Logging in at home (off-campus) to Journal web sites
The good news: most journal publishers will allow you to use your University email
username and password to log into their sites
The bad news: its [a little bit] complicated!
Here's how - two examples: Sciencedirect
It has been suggested that the VPN is useful for accessing journals
see the setup page at
If you start the VPN
before you run your web browser this will make it appear that you are on
campus. I've not tried this myself.
know if you have any problems with other sites, or if you think
it would help if I added other sites to this page.
There are instructions from the Library here,
but mostly about access to books
