Can’t access a resource?
A quick checklist for common issues:
- Are you located on a UNIS IP, or connected to UNIS via VPN?
- Is the article you’re trying to access covered by UNIS’ subscription, and by our coverage range?
- Are you trying to access a type of material we are not subscribed to? For example, are you trying to view an e-book from a platform where we are only subscribed to journal articles?
If you still cannot access any resources after correcting for the points above, there may be a problem with the publisher failing to recognize your right to access the materials. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate the issue and help you get access to the material you need.
