How to set up IP Access


How do I update my IP ranges in ProQuest Academic?

You can limit access to your ProQuest site by entering IP addresses in the ProQuest Administration Manager. When a user accesses the site from a permitted IP they will be granted access without having to enter further authentication details.

Note: The ProQuest Local Administrator Program is for authorized library/institution personnel only. Please contact Technical Support if you do not have an account set up, or if you forgot your login information.
Login to ProQuest Administrator Module at
  1. Click on Authentication/Access on the left side of the page.
  2. Click on the IP Address tab.
  3. Enter in the IP range you want access from.  If you wish to enter a single IP rather than a range, you only need to complete the Starting IP boxes.  Please ensure that ranges are unique and do not overlap.
  4. Select a usage group.
  5. Click Save.
