For IEEE Xplore® digital library subscribers.
Use these tools and resources to manage your IEEE online subscription and help your users and colleagues get the most out of IEEE Xplore.
Take advantage of new institutional branding on IEEE Xplore.
Institutional subscribers can now request access to an Institutional Administration Account. With an Institutional Administration Account, administrators at an organization will be able to modify and customize certain information associated with their IEEE Xplore institutional subscription accounts.
The administrator of this account will have access to do the following:
Institutional Administrator Accounts also provide access to customer tools through convenient links to useful items found on the IEEE Client Services Web site. These items include IEEE Xplore training materials, usage stats, IP amendment form, and more.
This initial launch of institutional administration access is set up with preliminary features. Over time, this module will be enhanced with further value-added features.
Request an Institutional Administration Account by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
IEEE provides comprehensive lists of IEEE journals, magazines, conference proceedings, and standards which are updated biweekly. The lists can be downloaded in comma delimited or Excel format and provide information such as title, ISSN, start date, end date, issues per year, and persistent link. Sort the lists by subscription package (IEL, ASPP, POP, etc) to determine a complete list of titles available in your subscription.
Create links quickly and easily from your library Web site, corporate intranet, or portal to IEEE titles using the title lists. The links created from this list will remain intact into the future. Catalogers can also use these lists to facilitate linking between a library’s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) and the corresponding IEEE title. The lists give librarians the information necessary to build links from OPAC records directly into the publication’s page in IEEE Xplore.
To create links from your library Web site, corporate intranet, or an OPAC record to a publication in IEEE Xplore, insert the appropriate link into your system. Links may be created at the title level (for journals/magazines, conference proceedings, and standards) or at an issue’s table of contents level (for journals/magazines only).
For links to the publication title level, the linking algorithm is:
For links to a journal/magazine’s issue level, the linking algorithm is:
X = an IEEE-designated publication number, unique to each title
Y = the volume number
Z = the issue number
Please note that there are no spaces between characters in the URL string.
IEEE also provides a list of renamed, new, merged, and discontinued journal, transaction, and magazine titles.
OpenURL enables a user who has retrieved an article citation to obtain immediate access to the appropriate copy of that object through the implementation of extended linking services. With this protocol, librarians can work with commercially available link resolver software to fully enable their publication catalog.
You can establish links between IEEE Xplore and additional resources in your institution through your link resolver. To set up OpenURL in IEEE Xplore, fill out the form below. Once IEEE has enabled your link resolver, your end users will see outbound links in reference lists on AbstractPlus pages or for content not covered by your IEEE Xplore subscription.
If you are having problems with inbound linking to IEEE Xplore using OpenURL, please take a look at your OpenURL knowledge base and make sure you have the correct subscription packages activated.
Customers who subscribe to the IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) on IEEE Xplore and ExLibris SFX, should select IEEE Xplore Conferences (IEL), IEEE Series (IEL), IEEE Xplore Journals (IEL), and IEEE Xplore Standards (IEL) in the ExLibris SFX KnowledgeBase.
Customers who subscribe to the IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) on IEEE Xplore and SerialsSolutions, should select IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) and IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) Proceedings by Volume.

IEEE makes available a COUNTER-compliant usage statistics site (login required) to help subscribing institutions better understand how their users access content in IEEE Xplore. This free service provides secure, password-protected access to subscriber-specific usage information. In addition to providing all reports required by the latest COUNTER Release, the site also provides usage reports for IEEE Conferences and Standards. Data provided covers current year activity and historical data for the previous two calendar years.
For information on the COUNTER standards for the report of online document usage visit projectcounter.org.

IEEE has partnered with OCLC to create enriched MARC records for each title in the IEEE-Wiley eBooks Library. Please see below for instructions on how to access the MARC records via the OCLC website.
IEEE Xplore now supports the Athens Access Management system and the Shibboleth architecture. Authentication via Shibboleth or Athens provides IEEE Xplore access to off-site (remote) licensed users while providing staff, students, and researchers with single sign-on access to IEEE Xplore, as well as other collections your institution may subscribe to.
To date, IEEE is a member of more than 15 federations. IEEE will continue to join access federations to offer Shibboleth authentication to those institutions that require it.
To get started with Athens or Shibboleth authentication for IEEE Xplore, please click the link below
