Off-campus access

What: In accordance with the licenses, the full-texts of the Library online resources are available only through the School network.

A VPN connection (virtual private network) is available to allow affiliated members to access resources from home. The VPN can be enabled through the IVE gateway: you can find the quick link in the Library homepage.

Who: The service is provided to all affiliated members with a Sant’Anna School account.

How:  On the IVE login page, you must enter your School account: n.surname + password or, for Guest account, gXXXXX + password. Once logged in, you’ll be virtually connected to the School network.

On the IVE menu page you can select “Biblioteca Internet” to access our homepage, or “OneSearch” to start your bibliographic search.

In case a resource link opens a new window or tab where the IVE URL prefix ( doesn’t appear any more, you’ll have to run the Network connect application to get that content.  Go back to the IVE menu page, click on the “Avvia” button next to Network connect (at the bottom of the menu) and go on launching the program; once done it, you can select again the desired resource.

Through the IVE gateway you can get from home almost all the resources licensed by the Library: for some content there may be technical incompatibilities with the VPN - IVE connection.
