Good news! Offsite access to selected electronic titles has been greatly improved! Library’s registered readers now can access the English and Chinese electronic resources from the Library’s catalogue (catalogue.nla.gov.au/ ), regardless of whether they are in the building or offsite.
The National Library of Australia has subscribed to a number of Chinese online resources to complement our print collections. Now readers can access our online resources either via the eResources portal http://www.nla.gov.au/app/eresources/ or through the relevant catalogue record. An icon - a gold key symbol - has been added to the end of the URL link found in the full catalogue record to indicate if offsite access is available. For example below:
Click on the gold key symbol near the URL link in the full record display, you will be presented with a login screen below:
After entering your user ID and name, you will pass directly to the title.
To access a selected range of licensed electronic resources from offsite, you must be a registered reader. To register simply click on Get a Library Card from www.nla.gov.au/getalibrarycard.
