Connect from Off Campus

The Library provides 24/7 access to thousands of electronic journals, books, databases and other resources through its website. Going through the library website is the easiest way to connect to library resources from off-campus.

When you access an electronic resource from the library website, you will automatically be directed to a login screen where you need to enter your U of R username and password (same username as URCourses or webmail). 

The best place to begin your search is Quick Find, the search portal for our collection. To find full text items in Quick Find, refine your search using the "Full text online" filter. You can also search our databases directly from the Library database listing, or find resources on our research guides.


  1. Make sure your browser is set to allowJavaScript and cookies, and that you are using the most recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
  2. Close and reopen your web browser.
  3. Ensure you are entering your uregina login and password in the right fields. If you have your library barcode, you can also try using the barcode/last name fields.
  4. Use the account diagnostic tool to check the status of your uregina account. If there are problems with your account, contact the IT SupportCentre.
  5. If the account diagnostic tool says your accountis valid and active and you are still having trouble accessing one of the library’s electronic resources, contact the library for help.  If possible, include the name of the resource and the error message you are seeing.


Alternate methods for Off-Campus Access

If you want to access a full-text article or licensed resource without going through the library website first, you can connect directly using the Library’s EZproxy service.

You can create a link to a licensed resource by adding our EZproxy prefix in front of the URL.  This link will work from anywhere.

Our Ezproxy prefix is:

Use the UofR EZProxy Bookmarklet

Drag and drop the U of R EZproxy bookmarklet to your bookmarks bar of your web browser.  When you hit a paywall, click on the button and you will be prompted to login with your U of R username and password.
