Large volume access to e-journals due to the browser's preloading functions

A large volume of unintentional access to e-journals due to the browser's preloading functions has frequently occurred.

This feature gives you a lot of access to certain documents in the background, even if you think you are browsing the site normally. As a result, the publisher may decide that it is an unauthorized use and temporarily block access to the site from Hiroshima University.

This is especially common with "previous versions of Microsoft Edge." The latest version does not have this function, so please upgrade to the latest version (Microsoft Edge based on Chromium).
