A small number of the websites are subscription sites and access passes through the Library’s EZproxy system, so access is not available if you are not a member of the University of Auckland Library. Access to some non-subscription sites may also pass through EZproxy (intentionally or unintentionally). If you are not a member of the Library and are presented with a University of Auckland Login screen, you can try the following:
- Return to the OFFSTATS page.
- Place your mouse pointer over the link in question, then click your secondary mouse button (usually the right button).
- From the pop-up menu, select the option to copy the shortcut or link.
- Paste the link into the browser address bar, then remove 'http://ezproxy.auckland.ac.nz/login?url=' from the beginning of the link.
- Go to the link.
If you find that you can access the full content of the website and it therefore does not appear to be a subscription site, you may contact OFFSTATS to see if EZproxy can be removed from the link on the OFFSTATS site.
