Connect to Emory Libraries Digital Resources

Helping authorized users more easily connect to Emory Libraries licensed digital resources from anywhere in the world.


Who has access

Emory University, like many of our research university peers, allows only current Emory students, faculty, and staff to connect to licensed digital resources off campus.

Emory University alumni have access to a select number of premium digital resources remotely.

How to access

Nearly all of the Libraries licensed digital resources can be accessed off campus by connecting to them through Databases@Emory or eJournals@Emory. When connecting you will be asked to agree to the Emory Libraries Resources Terms of Use by logging in with your Emory NetID and password.

If you have problems connecting, please submit a request for assistance via our form for reporting issues with ejournals and databases.

Emory Libraries Terms of Use screen.

Alternative method to manually access

The Libraries use a proxy server to ensure licensed digital resources are available to the Emory community. If you have a link directly to a digital resource (e.g. an ejournal, article, or ebook) you can manually create a URL to authenticate as an Emory user and gain access by appending the url prefix http://proxy.library.emory.edu/login?url=, followed by the URL of the digital resource you wish to access.

For example, the link that would provide you access to JSTOR (jstor.org) looks like this: http://proxy.library.emory.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org

For your convenience, the library has created an Emory Proxy Resolver Bookmarklet that you can use to automatically create the proxy URLs mentioned above. Review our guide for more information on how to install and use the Emory Proxy Resolver Bookmarklet. If you have problems connecting, please submit a request for assistance via our form for reporting issues with ejournals and databases.

Access from international locations

The Libraries proxy server (described above) allows users anywhere in the world to connect to the Libraries licensed digital resources. Use the Databases@Emory or eJournals@Emory page to find and connect to these digital resources. If you have problems connecting, please submit a request for assistance via our form for reporting issues with ejournals and databases.
