Off-campus Access

Off-campus access to Panitza Library electronic resources is available only to current AUBG students, faculty, and staff due to licensing agreements.

Windows Users

1. Download Panitza Library remote access ZIP file.
2. Extract the file using software like WinZip, WinRar, 7-Zip, etc.
3. Choose where you wish to save it on your computer.
4. Run the file Panitza Library remote access by opening Mozilla Firefox Portable inside the folder. Note that Mozilla Firefox Portable does not work simultaneously with another Mozilla Firefox. Make sure you close the other Mozilla Firefox browser before running the Portable version.

Once you log in, an authorization screen (see below) will pop up.

  • Students must sign in with STUDIN\username (example: STUDIN\ght098) and their AUBG password.
