Licensed online library resources are restricted from viewing outside the campus network. There are several ways to access licensed resources from off-campus:
Use the off-campus sign in through the library website for the most reliable way to access licensed resources from off-campus. Using the the off-campus sign in will result in a prompt for your name.# and password, which will permit off-campus access. Or, you can use the off-campus sign in directly in the OSU library catalog. You should only need to sign in once per session.
Many publishers/vendors permit access directly from their website with OSU authentication. If the library subscribes to a resource and if the publisher/vendor provides direct access, you can use proxy authentication to access the resource. Place this string at the beginning of the vendor’s URL: http://proxy.lib.ohio-state.edu/login?url=http://[enter vendor’s URL here]. Example: http://proxy.lib.ohio-state.edu/login?url=http://www.scopus.com/home.url. You will be prompted for your name.# and password, which will permit off-campus access through the publishers/vendors site.
You can also apply an OSU Libraries' Bookmarklet within your browser, which you can selectively use to authenticate while visiting a publisher/vendor site. Information on using a Bookmarklet is here.
Please note that VPN authentication will not provide authentication for most library resources and is not recommended to be used in combination with the library Off-campus sign in.
