Accessing Electronic Resources is Changing

Accessing certain library e-resources is changing. These changes notably affect those connected to the UofT wireless network and/or UTORvpn.

  • Direct access to some e-resource platforms like Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, and the American Chemical Society is no longer available from these networks.
  • Users may now access these e-resources through the library catalogue, facilitated by our internal electronic resource service, EZProxy.

Why It Matters:

It has become more challenging to manage reports of excessive download due to potential information piracy, prompting vendors to potentially limit our access to e-resources.
