Alternative method to access our eResources

If you have difficulty accessing our eResources via Discover (articles and more) or A-Z Databases and Online Resources list, you can use this following option:

Log in via the Proxy Server You will need to log in here with your Birkbeck username and password every time you use the eLibrary

The majority of our resources are available via our proxy server. The advantage of this method of access is that you do not have to load any cookies and simply enter your Birkbeck username and password when requested.

In general there are very few problems with this method of access.

If you get a list of resources then all is well, if your browser reports that it cannot find the web page or if nothing happens then there may a problem with the server. If that is the case, please check the eLibrary News column to see if any alerts have been posted.

Please be aware that there are a handful of databases that will still require you to login via AthensMD - if you are accessing a relevant database via our A-Z of Databases and Online Resources list. You will need to use your Birkbeck username and password.
