Remote services for Fall 2020

Visit the Fall 2020 Resources page for Undergraduate Students to learn about remote services such as print collection digitization requests and Article Express.

Accessing library resources from off-campus

Most of the Library's electronic resources are available to registered students, faculty, and staff when away from campus, including while abroad. The Library offers two means of remote access, EZproxy and VPN.

EZproxy

The EZproxy service requires no configuration. It can be used directly from our Databases listings. Off-campus users will be asked to supply their Princeton netIDs and passwords when first attempting to access a resource that requires authentication. Resources in the listings marked "Princeton Only" do not work through EZproxy and are available only from designated Library workstations within our physical libraries.

Need help with EZproxy? Contact Library Support at lsupport@princeton.edu. If you are having problems with a specific resource please include the URL you are trying to access in your message.

Sonicwall Secure Remote Access (SRA)

Virtual Private Network (VPN) services are managed by Princeton's Office of Information Technology (OIT). These require installing and configuring additional software on your computer. At the present time only the "SonicWall Secure Mobil Access VPN" option in OIT's page is fully compatible with Library electronic resources so please utilize that option for your research.
