Proxy server e-resources

Some resources cannot be authenticated via Shibboleth / OpenAthens. If you are trying to use them off campus you will need to use the specific proxy URL set up for the resource and found at the end of the resource description in the Online databases and academic journals link in the portal.

  • ASCE Research Library
  • CCH Company Reporting
  • FT.Com (Financial Times) (Note: the FT.com proxy URL is in the process of being created and the portal will be updated accordingly).  
  • LearnTechLib
  • OECD iLibrary
  • Science Classic
When you are on campus, all resources can be accessed as normal via the Online databases and academic journals in the University portal. Click here for instructions.
