For most electronic resources subscribed by NUS Libraries, NUS matriculated students and full-time NUS staff access them using the same method (via ezproxy), both on-campus as well as off-campus. (Some exceptions)
If you are accessing resources via the library portal, FindMore@NUSL, LINC etc, in general the proxy string needed would already be included in the URL and you can authenticate as per normal using your NUSNET ID and password.
However if you are trying to access eresources without starting at library pages, you will be asked to login or pay for the article. As such you can use the following methods
- If you are accessing via Google Scholar, set up Findit@NUSLibraries link via the Google Library Links Programme.
- If you are accessing via Google or any other way and land on the journal publisher page, consider using the proxy bookmarklet method.
Please note that for access to eresources subscribed by NUS Libraries, NUS VPN will not have any effect on access, if you don't already have access.
In some rare cases, the network you are on off campus, may have security restrictions preventing eresource access, logging on via NUS VPN first followed by the usual access method may solve this issue.
