How can I use the “Off-Campus Access” service?

Academic and the Administrative Staff and the Students may use the “Off-Campus Access” service by typing their member codes, which consist of the university e-mail usernames and passwords for the former and the usernames and passwords that are used to login to ÖBS (Student Information System) system for the latter, either

  • in the member code / password area, which is to be accessed after clicking on the off-campus access to databases to be found under the database headings in the databases and the e-book pages; or
  • in the member code / password area, which is to be accessed after clicking on the “PDF Full Text” link of any article that comes up in the search results.

This process is to be executed once for each connection/session. When your connection is interrupted, the system forgets your previously entered “username” and “password”. For this reason, the “Login” box appears for each connection to be established and the above process must be repeated.

Important Notice:

It is possible to face some problems due to network and security settings when trying to connect to the remote access system from offices or similar locations.

If you are connecting to the remote access system from your home network, you need to check the Internet and network security settings of your personal computer.
