Accessing electronic resources

Most of the library's electronic resources can be accessed on and off campus.

When accessing e-resources on campus via University network (excluding student residence area and Staff Hotel), there is no login required.

When accessing e-resources off campus, either EZproxy or Shibboleth login is required for most of our e-resources:

  • EZproxy: directly pops up, asking for your UNNC username and password.
  • Shibboleth login: also called “Institutional Login”, “UK Federation Login” and “Login through your university” etc. It asks for UNNC username and password as well.

Please see the examples bellow.


Situation 1: EZproxy


Input your UNNC network username and password

Situation 2: Shibboleth login

Find “Sign In” area and Shibboleth/Institutional Login option


For detailed information on accessing e-resources, please refer to A-Z resource list below.
