In order to access and consult all of the library’s e-resource collections, you must first configure the proxy settings of your device (PC, iPad, tablet, smartphone, etc.).
Direct connection to e-resources
Certain e-resources are also directly accessible (without configuring the proxy) by connecting via Shibboleth and entering your Polytechnique identifier and password. The databases accessible with this type of connection are identified in the A-Z Databases list by a green arrow and an “Off-Campus access to this database” link, which leads to a direct authentication screen.
Whether you want to access the Library’s databases and e-book/e-journal collections via the proxy or the direct authentication screen, you must login with your Polytechnique identifier and password.
A student’s identifier is usually composed of the first two (2) letters of his/her first name and the first three (3) letters of his/her family name.
Professors and Employees
Whether you try to access the Library’s databases and e-book/e-journal collections via the proxy or the direct authentication screen, you must login with your Polytechnique identifier (pmatricule, codeusager, abcde or number) and password.
Please note that even if you are using a Polytechnique Montréal VPN connection, you must also configure your proxy settings in order to access the Library’s electronic resources.
|Technical support for configuring your proxy settings is offered by the central Computer Services Dept.|
