When you are accessing QUB Library e-resources (e-books, e-journals, journal articles & databases) off campus, E-Resources Off Campus can help guide you to the most appropriate resources.

Alternatively, you can also use QUB Library Proxy (EZproxy bookmarklet) to access e-resources off campus. This can be useful if you are accessing content directly on a publisher's site. 

Once it is installed on your browser, click on the button, the webpage will be reloaded via our EZproxy server and you will be prompted to input your QUB login credentials. Where there is a subscription to the publisher site, full text access will be granted.
