Accessing Siku Quanshu

Siku Quanshu is accessed through a client program that must be installed in your computer.

  1. Go to: http://us.subscriptionv3.skqs.com/skqs/download/
  2. Download the client program software (setup.exe).  Also available on this page are the Installation Guide and User Manual.

Using Siku Quanshu:

  • On FSU campus: Open the client program and select IP Login.
  • Off campus: Request username and password from Adam Beauchamp (abeauchamp@fsu.edu).

Note: FSU's subscription only allows one person at a time to access SKQS. Please remember to Log Out when you are finished so others may access this resource.
