Most of our electronic resources are governed by license agreements which restrict use to Kwantlen Polytechnic University students and employees and to individuals who use library facilities on a walk in basis. In order to ensure that a user is a Kwantlen student or employee, we use a proxy server which prompts the user to enter their unique Kwantlen ID and password. If the ID that is entered is not recognized, the user will not gain access to the resource.
You should not save PDF files of articles and upload them to your Moodle site. Instead, use the linking instructions set out on this guide to create permalinks that automatically direct students to access the resources through our proxy server.
The Kwantlen library uses eZproxy as our proxy server.
Things might sound complicated, but with a little help, it can be quite easy! Contact email@example.com if you require any clarification.
***Always test your links from off campus***
While working remotely, many KPU employees are using Citric or VPN to connect to their desktop at KPU. There are some limitations when using these resources with KPU Library resources.
To provide for seamless access, best practices is to connect directly to the Library web page at https://www.kpu.ca/library. Almost all the resources found there should work as if you were on campus; in many cases, you will be prompted to login with your KPU username and password (same one you use when you login to the computer at your desk).
