Electronic Resources Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

No, only current NTHU faculty, staff, and students are eligible for remote access to licensed e-resources due to signed agreements.

Alumni and other patrons are welcomed to visit the library to access e-resources via the public computers.

No, the e-resources subscribed individually by each UST university can only be used by its own current patrons. If NCTU Library has the e-resource you need, you can visit the NCTU library to use it.

All current NTHU faculty, staff, and students are able to access the e-resources off campus via VPN or log in to your library account from e-Search. If you forgot your password, please contact the Circulation Desk at extension 42997/42996, or email cir@my.nthu.edu.tw

Please email your name, student number, department, and the name of the database to ref@my.nthu.edu.tw. We will check for you and reply as soon as possible.

Please first double check via e-journal system. If you found the e-journal, but still can't access the full text, please email your name, student number, and department to ref@my.nthu.edu.tw including the complete reference (e-journal name, article title, issue number, page number). If you can’t find the journal both in e-journal system and in library catalog, then the library may not subscribe to this journal due to limited budgets, please request by Interlibrary Loan Service instead.

Since some e-books on MyiLibrary are from the early 90s, they might not be in PDF or ePub format. If you cannot open them, please try the following:

  • Briowse with IE 7.0
  • Use Unicode: View > Encoding > Unicode
  • Add language: Tool > Internet options > General > Language > Add > English
  • Reopen the browser

If you still can't access even after these steps, please email the e-book title to ref@my.nthu.edu.tw, we will check and reply to you as soon as possible.
