Abstract

A case study of off campus (remote) access to licensed/subscribed electronic resources (e-resources) of the Health Sciences Library of Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University, Manipal, which offers diverse sets of electronic information resources for its users, is presented here. User community, residing outside the campus and off campus were disadvantaged by the inability to access library e-resources in their hours of need. Due to the pressing demand from the user community for off/remote campus access to the subscribed e-resources, library initiated the search for an appropriate off campus login access solution and identified EZproxy remote access software as the solution. EZproxy platform provides a single point remote access to various subscribed resources of the library. This article gives various steps involved in the implementation of off campus access facility in the library with its benefits, conditionality for access and technical details.
