All e-resources are available at access points within the university; once off campus, access is granted by logging in and authenticating to a proxy server using the ID and password supplied to authorized users. UnivAQ Library System offers a large number of online research databases, ebooks collections and journals subscriptions, which have licensing restricted to current UnivAQ students, faculty and staff. When you use these resources, the proxy server (also called EZproxy) will detect that you are not in Campus and will serve you the standard University of L'Aquila sign-in screen. From there, you just need to login as usual for access.
