New proxy arrangements


Following successfully testing a new proxy service on two resources, we will be introducing this service for a further range of databases from next week. The proxy service is used for electronic resources which are authenticated by IP address only to make them available to off campus users.

The new system makes use of the new Athens Simplified system, meaning that you will only need to enter your network username and password, rather than having to make complicated changes to browser settings.

Instead off campus users going via the Databases tab in SOLAR will automatically be sent to the new login page 



From next week, we will be introducing this system for the resources below.  Feel free to test this out using the links :
