Resources off-campus visits 

        In order to meet the needs of students and faculties of International Campus to use Library's electronic resources off-campus, Library has sorted out the methods of access to electronic resources off-campus, so that all the students and faculties can access electronic resources easily. Please feel free to use.  

Access method 1: RVPN  

        RVPN is a virtual private network technology with security encryption protection. RVPN is only available off-campus (Not available under campus network). 

       Students and faculties of International Campus can use INTL ID to log in to the RVPN and access most of Library's digital resources off-campus. 

       Instruction: 「

Access method 2: WebVPN system  


       Login: Use VPN account and password   

       After logging in, you can choose any resources for access according to your needs. The unlisted database resources can be accessed through the database search guide. You can access most of the databases ordered by the library.   


       (1) Please enter the database page through the library website or the electronic resource guide on the library website. Direct access through entering of the domain name of the visited resource in the address bar of the browser is not supported.  

       (2) Do not run RVPN and WebVPN simultaneously in case of access failure;   

       (3) Using WebVPN to access library electronic resources does not require the installation of clients and plug-ins. It is available on the computers, mobile phones and Pads, except non-Web protocol applications, such as remote desktop, FTP, etc.  

       (4) If the account cannot be authenticated for logging in, please contact the ITS (24-hour hotline 0571-87951669). For other usage questions, please leave your questions on the message board of the library website.  

       (5) Please use WebVPN to access the newly added trial database.   

Access method 3: CARSI  

        CARSI (CERNET Authentication and Resource Sharing Infrastructure)is the CERNET Authentication and Resource Sharing Infrastructure of China Education and Research Computer Network. It was initiated by the Computing Center of Peking University in December 2008. It has been established in domestic universities for unified user management and identity of campus networks. Based on the authentication system, it provides cross-domain identity authentication and resource sharing services to Chinese universities and research institutions.  

        When using CARSI, the educational network resource sharing service, students and faculties only need to log in to the database and enter the INTL ID to directly access some electronic resources off-campus without RVPN, which is very convenient. 

        At present, INTL ID-certified databases can be accessed off-campus are listed as follow:
