You need to configure your computer for the Library proxy server to be able to access all the electronic resources provided by the Library.The IT service (Computer Services) offers technical support for proxy configuration and remote network access. You can also communicate with us for help with the proxy.
However, 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.
If you have a valid Polytechnique ID, you can access most online resources from outside the campus.
Don't hesitate to contact our Reference Desk.
