Remote Access to Data Resources

reference and instruction services

For assistance in the use of the data resources

Contact the Reference and Instruction Services:



Most of the library's electronic resources - databases, journals, books, and reprints are only accessible to the Tel-Aviv University community and are not accessible to the general public.

As of today, it is possible to access databases, books, articles, and datasets in full text via OpenAthens.

We are making the connections for you. All you have to do is look for the relevant information and login with your university credentials.

Access to online resources is possible in the following ways:

  • Through DaTA: Sign in to your personal account and then when logging in to the online resource with your university credentials (username, ID number, and university password).
  • Through the Databases portal: When clicking on the name of the database, you will be asked to log in with your university credentials.
  • Installing LibKey Nomad: This browser extension allows you to get direct access while surfing online to articles and books available through the subscriptions of the Tel Aviv University libraries.
  • Reached a website where you are not recognized as part of the TAU community? Look for INSTITUTIONAL LOGIN in the menu. If the university has an agreement with it, you will be able to use your university credentials (available for some of the databases and providers).
  • At Google Scholar: click on Tau Find Text and log in with your university credentials (username, ID number, and university password). If you cannot see the TAU Find Text link, please do the following:
  1. Click on the advanced options of Google Scholar (the tree lines on the top left)
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Click on Library links
  4. Write Tel Aviv University in the search box
  5. Tick Tel Aviv University- TAU Find Text
  6. Save



Remember: you must use your TAU credential on any computer except PCs in the libraries.

As of February 2024, the Proxy service for remote access to electronic resources will no longer be supported.

We recommend researchers and students who have configured proxy settings to cancel these configurations. Instructions for canceling Proxy settings can be found in this link.
