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).

  • If you remove the pop-up blocker and still the “Remote Access Database Menu" does not open, try to close the browser and reopen it.
  • Please refer to the following pages for the settings on each browser.
When using from a smartphone

The smartphone site cannot open the “Remote Access Database Menu". If you proceed to log in to MyLibrary, you can switch to the PC site at the bottom of the screen. Please switch to the PC site and log in to MyLibrary to use it.
