Reminders

While logging into the services, users will fall outside the range of the proxy service when electronic journal sites are accessed directly from a bookmark such as Favorites. Be sure to follow links from this page. If you jump from this page to a website not supported by the proxy service you will also go out of the range of the service.

Users should understand that the proxy service is only accessible within the range of its supporting sites.

 

It is possible to find out if the user is within the range of proxy service in the URL of the browser. For example, while in the following site,

www.nature.com

if the URL has 'ejgw.nul.nagoya-u.ac.jp' as in the following,

www.nature.com.ejgw.nul.nagoya-u.ac.jp

the user is within the range of the proxy. If 'ejgw.nul.nagoya-u.ac.jp' is not in the address, the user is outside of the range of the proxy. Messages such as 'Unauthorized to use the site' may appear on the monitor.

The following diagram shows the image of within and outside of range. Software called EzProxy is used, whose name appears in the diagram.

 

When realizing that you have gone out of range of the service, return to this page and follow links to the necessary page, which is accessible without logging in.
