Off-Campus Access.

Access licensed digital content from off-campus.

Please adhere to the licensing conditions!


Digital Library

Aside from a few exceptions, JKU students and employees can access our e-media both on and off campus.
(For detailed information, please see the instructions in EZB and DBIS. You will also find the corresponding links to log in via HAN authentication software.)
Please log in using your JKU account.

Those with BK identification (general library users not affliated with the JKU) can access eMedia on campus with few exceptions (such as RDB) but not off campus.

OA (Open Access) resources are different and are globally accessible without having to log in. Subject to change depending on any publishing policy revisions.


At the moment, you only need to register if you are conducting research off-campus!

You will be asked to log in only after you have selected an eResource. (There is no central access link.)
