Access problems

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.
