Online Learning: Connecting to the Library

What's in the Online Library?

Google only provides access to a small percentage of information that is available.

Library sources are in the deep web and require subscriptions...the library has them!


Over 90% of the library sources are electronic, including articles and books.




Authentication is required for connecting to the NJIT network. If you do not have a University Computing identification (UCID), create one now.

Authentication Options:

  1. EZproxy (recommended)
    It is the easiest and most reliable authentication method. UCID is required and status as a current NJIT student, faculty and staff member.
  2. VPN (Virtual Private Network)
    VPN is a client software you install on your PC. It allows you to use your own Internet Service Provider (ISP) to connect to the NJIT network from off-campus to access information that is normally restricted to campus use only.  To connect to Library journals change default setting to 'full tunnel'

Note: Due to licensing resistrictions, off-campus (remote) access to some of the library's electronic resources is limited to current students, faculty and staff of New Jersey Institute of Technology. These restrictions prohibit us from offering off-campus access to guest borrowers, including alumni.
