What is IP authentication?

IP address authentication is the method of identifying users requesting access to vendor databases. It uses an organization’s outward facing IP addresses as a means to identify users coming from a subscribing institution and in turn authenticate access.

We route our links to IP authenticated e-resources via EZproxy. When you click on a link to one of these resources you will be redirected to the EZproxy login page where you login with your QUB username and password.

When a user goes through EZProxy all the publisher sees is a Queen’s IP.  

QUB library users are encouraged to use the Library homepage to locate resources suitable for their study and research.
