Statement on Access to Electronic Resources

Databases and electronic journals are provided for academic research by current authorized Georgia Tech faculty, students and staff only. The use of each online service is governed by copyright law and by the terms of the license between Georgia Tech and the publisher.

Access for on-campus users is via campus IP addresses, which are registered with our eresources vendors. Below are some best practices if you are off-campus.

  • For access to electronic journals, the option we recommend is accessing them through the Library's eJournals page on our website at: http://sfx.galib.uga.edu/sfx_git1/az. Our link resolver will ensure that you have the most current full text options and will pass you through the proxy server, which will allow the publishers' sites to recognize you as a legitimate Georgia Tech user.
  • This strategy works for databases as well: http://gtsearch.library.gatech.edu/search/
  • You may also want to check out our web localizer which will help you access library resources from external websites: http://www.library.gatech.edu/search/web_localizer.php
  • Another option is to use the proxy prefix with the publishers' direct links. Just add http://prx.library.gatech.edu/login?url= to the beginning of the publisher’s URL.
