Off-Campus Access to Stanford Library Resources

Web-Based Resources

Three methods are used to access web-based resources from off-campus.

  1. SUNet Web Authentication
    Go to the SULAIR Off-Campus Access page and following “cookbook” directions for your operating system and web browser, enter this proxy URL (Uniform Resource Locator) address into your browser settings:
    http://pac.stanford.edu/suproxy.pac
  2. EZ-Proxy
    When a resource is stored on a secure server, the URL begins with “https” instead of “http.” For resources with “https” URL or internet addresses, a special link is set up for off-campus access.
  3. Special Password for a Specific Resource
    In a few cases, a special password or code supplied by the resource provider is used instead. For example, RefWorks uses a group code that must be entered if you want to use RefWorks from off-campus. Contact Grace Baysinger (graceb@stanford.edu) for passwords.

Chemistry Software Programs for Searching Databases

While there are a few error message that you need to ignore, it is possible to access several chemistry software programs from off-campus using Internet Explorer. These programs include: Cambridge Structural Database, NIST Surface Structure Database (NIST SSD), and CASSI (Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index).

Access to these Chemistry Software Programs is done via a web browser and a Citrix plug-in. The Citrix plug-in activates the programs which are stored on a server.

First-time Users:

  • First, set up your browser for SUNet authentication (see #1 above). Recommend using Internet Explorer as the browser.
  • Next, check settings for pop-ups as you must allow pop-ups to be used. Go to Tools > Pop-up Blocker in the menu bar of IE to check setting.
  • Now, go to http://cdserver.stanford.edu/ (ignore certificate error when entering site). In Message Center, there will be a note to download and install Citrix plug-in.

Returning Users:

Login in as “Explicit” user and then enter in SUNet ID and password.

Choose Chemistry folder.

Choose the application.

A Citrix plugin is activated. Choose “Full Access”

After doing a search, click on “Save as” button at top to save search results. Navigate to ‘Client C’ Drive (your computer) and then Save file.
