Q. Off Campus access to library e-resources

I have been having problems signing in to the library off campus. I got the following attached form from IT department when i contacted them and they request i submit it to the library. Are you able to assist with gaining access or forward my query to the relevant person? I am currently on study leave hence can not come to the library to sort this out in person.


​​​​​Off-campus electronic access to the library e-resources is restricted to Stellenbosch University staff members and currently registered Stellenbosch University students.

Visit our library homepage click on E-Databases or E-Journals A-Z list under the FIND menu. When Off-campus and prompted to login, log on with your SU network username (also called 'network credentials' e.g. 12345678) and password.

If you do not have your own SU network username and password, see the campus network registration options on the library website on how to get access to the library's e-resources from off-campus.

*Important: For security reasons it is necessary to change your password at www.sun.ac.za/useradm every 90 days otherwise your access will automatically expire after 90 days.

  1. I am a postgrad student. I have been unable to access off-campus e-journals from the library site since 27 September

    I get the following error:
    atoz.ebsco.com.ez.sun.ac.za didn't send any data.

    Please help. I am very frustrated.
