Access to e-resources

Access for students, researchers, and others working at Uppsala University

When you are on campus, you do not need to log in anywhere. However, if you want to use our e-resources remotely, these three options are available:

  1. Log in via the Library's website
    Go to Uppsala University Library's website and click on the link to the e-journal, database or e-book that you are interested in.  A proxy function, which enables you to log in via the University's CAS (Central web authentication) page, is embedded in these links and after logging in you will get free access to all the Library's e-resources. Log in with your user-ID and password A.

  2. VPN service
    You can also access our resources outside the university network by connecting your computer with a VPN service. This service is only available to university staff. When you are connected, no further login is required.

  3. Create direct links to particular resource
    You can create direct links to individual articles, books or other e-resources. With such a link, you don't have to go via the Library's website or use VPN to access that particular resource.

Access for employees at Region Uppsala

To access the e-resources that Region Uppsala subscribes to, go to Sök information – E-biblioteket. At your workplace you automatically have access. However, outside your workplace you need to log in. Use the same credentials as those needed for your computer and e-mail. 

Access for other patrons

If you are not affiliated with Uppsala University or Region Uppsala, you are welcome to use our e-resources in the library. You can only access the e-resources on our public computers, not via Wi-Fi.
