Remote Access

Some e-resources (e-journals, e-books, databases) are available from off-campus. Follow the steps below.

Access via MyLibrary

  1. Log in to MyLibrary.
  2. Make sure that the “Remote Access Database Menu" pop-up window opens.
  3. Check the e-resources available from off-campus by the following method.
    • databases labeled as “Free" or “Remote access available (via MyLibrary)" in the Database List
    • e-journals and e-books labeled as “キャンパス外アクセス可" in the e-Journal/e-Book List
  • After logging in to MyLibrary, you can also access them via HERMES-Search search results or HERMES-Link.
  • You can also access e-books from the HERMES-Catalog.
If the pop-up window does not open

If the “Remote Access Database Menu" pop-up window does not open in step 2 above, you need to remove the pop-up blocker in your browser settings. If you get an error message, please allow pop-ups on this site (opac.lib.hit-u.ac.jp).
