Electronic services offered by the library

In addition to physical media (books, journals, CDs, DVDs, etc.), the library also provides a large selection of digital media. These can usually be accessed throughout the entire university network (campus licence).

However, this also means that students and (academic) staff can access most library services at home by authenticating themselves in the university network via Central IT. In most cases, this still works via VPN of the Nuremberg University of Technology or soon via EZProxy.

As a recommendation, always pay attention to the information of the individual databases in DBIS (webpage in German), as there are still offers that cannot be used off campus or have their own authentication procedure (e.g. Beck-Online, Linkedin Learning).

One exception is the open access databases and the historical sources, which are freely available without exception.

The open access databases and the historical sources are an exception to this as they are all freely available.

The databases can only be accessed from the university network.
