Home access for databases

You can access the available databases from home using your SCU username and password.

To get access you have two possibilities:

 

TOOL DESCRIPTION SUPPORT
BIBLIOPASS This is the preferred method and also the easiest to use. Use the link on the left and log in with your SCU username and password. You will find the list of the resources you can consult from home organized into categories.
We advise you to access Bibliopass FIRST even if you have to consult search tools such as TUTTO or TROVA. This way, if the resource you are looking for is available in full text, you can access it directly.
Should you have problems with this tool please fill the dedicated helpdesk form.
PROXY UNITO

This is an alternative service that with a minimal browser configuration, allows you to be recognized as a UNITO user terefore giving you access to electronic resources.
To configure it, look for the "proxy" section of the configuration options in the browser you usually use and enter the following parameters

  • as proxy server "proxy.unito.it"
  • as door "3128"
  • also remember to select, if present, the option "Use the same proxy for all protocols".

When you end your research, remember to return to the initial navigation settings, excluding the use of the Unito Proxy.

NOTE: There are several browser plugins on the network that allow you, with a single button, to activate and deactivate browsing through a proxy service.

 
MOST COMMON PROBLEMS

YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS TO ACCESS BUT YOU CANNOT ACCESS

Some databases have a subscription that only grant access to a limited number of concurrent users. If all users are in use, you cannot get access. In this cases you have to try to connect later.

If the problem persists, please report to reference.bem@unito.it.

 

YOU ARE CONNECTED TO A DATABASE BUT YOU CAN'T DOWNLOAD SOME ITEMS

Subscription to a resource may include access to only part of the content. We recommend that you write down the details of the document that you cannot access and try to see if it is possibly available getting access to it on another database.

If you cannot find it on any platform, you can ask BEM to activate the Document Delivery service: the library will ask a copy of the document (if available) from another library that owns it.

 

ON BIBLIOPASS YOU DO NOT FIND A DATABASE THAT YOU EXPECT TO FIND

Some databases, for licensing reasons, have access restrictions and must be consulted directly in the library.
