Off campus access

If you're accessing articles/ebooks on campus then you shouldn't have any problems.

But, off campus access can sometimes be problematic.

  • Some links take you directly to the article or ebook.
  • Some links ask for your University of Dundee username and password
  • Others you will have to follow 'institutional login' process.  Failing that, look for 'Shibboleth login'.  Simply, this means you have to tell the publisher what country you're from (choose UK), then choose the Institution (University of Dundee) and then you'll be asked for your University of Dundee username and password.
