How to use

There are some differences between each service, but the general flow is almost the same. Let us explain it briefly.

First, click “Institutional login” on a website (expression may differ depending on websites) and select “Saitama University” as institution. Next, log in with Saitama University Unified Authentication Account and password. For each e-resource, please look at the list below.

GakuNin uses a mechanism called “Single Sign-On”. Once you log in one service, you can use the other e-resources listed below without entering your account and password again.

Notice

You need to log out individually for each logged-in service and to close all of the logged-in browser windows. Please pay special attention with shared PCs.

Please be careful not to download too much data at one time (systematic and programmatic download). You cannot use e-resources commercially or beyond research purpose. Such prohibited use may lead to suspension of service.

You can only access the contents to which Saitama University subscribes.
