Online and Remote Access
IP Authentication and VPNsIf IP authentication has been set up at your institution, and you’re accessing on campus network, we authenticate based on the campus network information. If your institution provides remote access via a VPN then this should provide access to your content. Please reach out to your librarian to see if this an option for you
EZProxyIf your library uses EZProxy, you can use this service to access your library’s OUP content. Please reach out to your librarian to determine if this is an option for you.
Referring URLsWhere your institution or society has configured Referring URLs, you may also be able to access content through your Society member or institutional login page. Please reach out to your librarian to see if this an option for you
Shibboleth & OpenAthensIf your institutional Shibboleth access has been activated, users at your institution can choose the "Sign in via your institution" option within the sign in box on each online product’s homepage, in order to access content remotely using their institutional username and password.
