Jun-20 [E-service] Please inactivate preload function of your browser when visiting electronic resources such as JapanKnowledge

Please check your browser settings as your visit may be regarded as malicious access.


There have been reports of cases from JapanKnowledge, in which the visit of e-resources (e-journals, e-books, databases) by Nagoya University members is regarded as malicious access.
One possible cause of this is the malfunction of the "preloading function" built into web browsers.
When this function is activated, webpages may be repeatedly loaded in the background, resulting in a large amount of access, which may be regarded as malicious access and access to the entire university may be suspended.
In addition, it has also been pointed out that there is a risk of unintentional access to suspicious sites.
Therefore, when visiting electronic resources subcribed by the library, please inactivate the preloading function.
