Connecting from off campus

On Campus Access

Electronic journals, databases, and books are accessible from on-campus computers that are connected to University or Hospital networks. In most cases, no login is required when using a UNC networked computer to access library resources.

Most library computers require a UNC-CH Onyen login. Visitors can use the computers located in front of the elevators on the first floor of the Health Sciences Library without a login.

Off Campus Access

Most electronic journals, databases, and books are accessible off-campus to students, faculty, and staff. Links to licensed resources on library pages will require entry of your ID information when you are off-campus.

Create links to items licensed by UNC Libraries

Links to Library subscription database articles not working? For off campus access, try adding the following to the front of the URL:
https://auth.lib.unc.edu/ezproxy_auth.php?url=

To create direct, stable links to electronic resources available through UNC Libraries at the article level, you can also use the LinkGuide to get linking instructions specific to the database you are using.
