Access to Online Publications
The University Library of Greifswald has access to a large number of online resources.
They can either be accessed via the University Library´s OPAC (online catalogue) or directly. Access to these resources is subject to copyright and license regulations.
Free Access Resources at the University Library
Resources with Campus Licenses
Due to their license regulations, resources with campus licenses only allow access to members of the University of Greifswald.
Access to these resources and also printing and saving conditions are regulated by the respective license. Either individual or multi-licenses are acquired. If demand is high, there might not be sufficient licenses.
Access is granted automatically after you have successfully logged-in to the university network (workstations at the University Library, PC labs, office computers).
Some of the publications can also be accessed outside of the campus network via the authentication service Shibboleth. It requires users to login with their usual personal account allocated by the Computer Centre. The resources that can be accessed via Shibboleth can be found on the list below.
Central University Library
Resources that are not accessible via Shibboleth can be accessed via VPN (Virtual Private Network). Modifications to the proxy server are also necessary.
If access is possible via Shibboleth, this should be preferred to VPN.
Individual Workstation Licenses
