Remote Access to Electronic Resources

Elecronic 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 Library and access many of these resources from our public computers.

In order to access to subscribed electronic resources off-campus, you need first to configure the proxypac in your browser. Once you have configured the proxy, you will be required to authenticate.

Please use the following login credentials:

  • Username: your IMT email (name.surname@imtlucca.it)

  • Password: your Intranet password

Please contact the Library for any problems with fulltext access: send us an email at lib@imtlucca.it
