Access to e-resources

To access the e-resources you will need to be logged in to the internet via your university’s network.

To get access to the VPN or a Wi-Fi network, please contact your university, Flensburg University of Applied Sciences or Europa-Universität Flensburg.

Independent of your location, you can also log in to many publishers and database providers via Shibboleth or access e-media directly via the Discoverysystem.

As a member of the Flensburg universities you have Wi-Fi-access in the library building and in the STUDYbox.

Depending on which university you belong with, the access to e-resources may vary.
In addition, all library users may use the internet workstations in the reading room free of charge. Unrestricted access to the entire range of e-resources is only available at these workstations.
