Remote Access to Electronic Resources

Most of our electronic resources (e-journals and databases) are also available from anywhere off-campus.

Only current members of IMT community can access electronic resources off-campus, due to license restrictions of vendors and publishers.
Alumni and external Library users may come to the campus and access many of these resources from our public computers.
