Quickest Answer: Start from the Library website, find what you want and log in with your NJIT UCID when prompted.
Online resources (ebooks, ejournals, databases, online articles, streaming videos, etc.) are available from off-campus via the Library Website to current students, faculty, and staff. Locate the electronic resource you need and login with your valid NJIT UCID and password.
Patrons accessing resources from on-campus are typically recognized as authorized users via the campus network connection. But off-campus access will need to be authorized via authentication software.
It is the easiest and most reliable authentication method to access resources from anywhere and at anytime. No setup required. All you need is your UCID and password to authenticate via EZProxy.
VPN allows you to securely access resources from off-campus. NJIT supports Cisco's AnyConnect VPN. It allows you to use your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to connect to the NJIT network from off-campus. NOTE: To access the Library's electronic resources, you must select the "Full Tunnel (Library Journals)" VPN option.
Visiting scholars are considered NJIT employees. If they are allocated a UCID and NJITDM account they will be able to access “NJITsecure”; otherwise, they can access “NJITguest”. Only those with an NJITDM account may be able to access the Library's electronic resources remotely from off-campus.
Licensing restrictions prohibit us from offering off-campus access to guest borrowers, including alumni. Once students graduated from NJIT they can no longer access NJIT's network resources. Alumni are able to retain their email account for life, and have limited access to library's electronic resources from off-campus.
NJIT provides wireless access to the NJIT network and internet from many locations around campus, including the Van Houten Library. Current students, faculty and staff with a valid UCID may use the wireless network upon authentication.
