Access issues

  • Is this a known issue?
  • Was a password supplied to access the full text of the journal on campus?
    • If the password supplied for the journal did not work, please contact Efix. Passwords are occasionally changed by publishers for security reasons.
  • Are you off-campus?
    • Most electronic journals in the online catalogue, and all of the journals in the portal, are subscriptions. They are available off-campus to currently enrolled students and staff of the University of Sydney only, after logging into Off-campus Access (Library Authentication). Due to licence restrictions not all journals are set up to use Off-campus Access.
    • For problems and questions about Off-campus access, please contact the Electronic Access Librarian or your Faculty or Subject Liaison Librarian.
  • For all other problems and questions about ejournals, please contact Efix.
