Remote access allows library users to connect to library products from outside the library.
Remote access means communication by a user, device, or system with a distant computer system or computer network. May require the user to type or enter an authorized username and password, and special software or hardware, such as a modem.
EZproxy is a popular system used by libraries for remote authentication. Remote access can also be provided through Virtual Private Network. LUMS Library had successfully done it in July 2008.
