Logging on to databases and resources

This page highlights resources whose methods of access differ from the usual means (on-campus, EZproxy, or VPN).

Databases and electronic resources

In most cases, as long as you are using a computer on the McGill network or are using McGill's wireless network, you can access databases and resources without needing to login. If you are off-campus, you can still access these resources using EZproxy or VPN.

However, due to licensing restrictions or provider access mechanisms, some electronic resources (listed below) have slightly different methods of authentication from usual.
