Remote Access

Most databases can be accessed from the Main Campus without the requirement for additional authentication procedures. To use subscribed databases off-campus configure your web browser for FCU proxy to be authenticated as an FCU user. Off-campus access to licensed databases is available only to current Feng Chia University students, faculty and staff. This proxy service does NOT permit access to the electronic resources in the Library Only or Campus Only categories due to access eligibility or technical constraints. Please be aware of User’s Liability when using electronic resources.

Instructions for Configuring Your Web Browser

Open your web browser and go to Automatic Proxy Configuration by using the following URL:

Access Authentication

Once configuration has been completed, you will be asked for your username and password to access to the database. Enter full Employee/Student ID number as your username and the last four numbers of your ID number (e.g. Alien Resident Certificate ID number) as the password. Then, you can use the database just as you do on campus.

[ Note ]

  1. Password for authentication cannot be changed.
  2. Link to the database via library database list instead of bookmarking.
