We have visitor access to e-resources at the University of Wolverhampton
- information about the scheme can be found at
http://asp.wlv.ac.uk/Level4.asp?UserType=6&Level4=1818. Visitors can
only use particular machines in our Learning Centres. The visitor has to
provide ID, and is logged into the machine by a member of library staff.
The visitor also signs a booking sheet so we have a record of who has
used which computers. Once logged in, they are limited to accessing
specific web addresses.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Walk-in access solution?
With the accelerating move to e-services replacing paper based
information sources the role of the academic library as an information
resource for the local community is becoming compromised. Even when our
licence for an e-resource allows access for walk-in users other rules,
for example, correct use of JANET, may prevent us providing access.
Has anyone solved this, by this I mean has anyone set up a system that
provides walk-in users access to those resources where the licence
I would be grateful for any information in this area, even partial
success would be of interest.
