Primo: using the library catalogue: Off-campus and VPN access

Off-Campus access

Our extensive collections of electronic journals, databases and e-books are available to you 24/7 on and off-campus.

Before you start any searching off-campus: sign in to Primo

  • You know you have signed in successfully if your name displays at the top right hand of your screen.
  • You are now authenticated to access AU subscribed electronic resources. If you close your browser, you will need to sign into Primo again to re-authenticate.
  • When you find an e-book you're interested in, you may come across authentication and library notes within the item record when accessing an online resource - read these! For example: the book below can be accessed via Shibboleth authentication (your AU username and password or if you've signed in to Primo already, this will take you to the book automatically) if you're off-campus and also the book has 1 concurrent user licence.
