Setting up Off-campus Access
Due to access restrictions governed by resource purchase agreements, the service is restricted to the NationalTsingHuaUniversity faculty, researchers, students, staff, research assistants, and other authorized users. You must check the connection setting prior to accessing online library resources, as well as use a library card number and password for authorization verification.
You are responsible for the care of your own library user account and password for off-campus access, which must be used legally. If materials are used illegally, there may be serious legal consequences and you will loose your library privileges. If you do not have off-campus access privilege, you are welcomed to use the computers in the Library for database searches.
