How does it work?

What it does

The remote access server does two things:

  1. Validates you as a current student, faculty or staff of University of Ghana by use of an assigned username and password.
  2. Acts as a gateway to resources that are licensed or otherwise restricted to University of Ghana.

How you use it

You must first register for this service by clicking on the link below :

Off Campus Access

If after Forty-eight hours you are unable to access the service using the credentials you supplied when registering, email your queries to the E - Resources Librarian, Mrs. Theodosia Adanu (

Security software such as Norton Internet Security should be completely deactivated. After deactivation, restart your workstation and try using the resources again.

Software such as Google Web Accelerator, which make use of their own proxy server, may need to be disabled so that the UG library remote access system can work correctly.
