Here you can search in most of the material available in the Library.

Search our databases when off-campus

You can search our databases and journals when you are off-campus, either via our databases or via the University Remote desktop.

Use the Remote desktop to login to the library's database pages from home. For the remainder of the spring term there will be problems accessing databases directly via the links on the library's database pages. A new login solution will be implemented in June.

Via Remote desktop

You can access the databases from home or off-campus by using our University service Remote desktop.
Manuals on how to use the remote desktop with you PC; Mac or other units can be found on the log-in page.

    Via databases

    1. Go to the page Databases A-Ö and select the database you want to use. When you click on the name of the database, there will be a form where you log-in by using your user account.
    2. Log-in using your user account, on the proxy server form and then select database.

    Log-in problems?

    If your computer has a fire wall, you may experience log-in problems. To be able to log-in, the Tcp-port 2048 in the fire wall needs to be open to the proxy server IP-number 130.243.0-16. Your operating system determines how to open the port.

    Our Search Portal Discovery

    Discovery is our Search Portal where you can search in many resources at once instead of searching individual databases. You can search for articles, e-books and our printed books in Discovery. Use Discovery if you do not know what database you should search in.

    Search for information within a subject

    Our Subject Guides can be useful if you are searching for information in a certain subject. Here we give tips about databases, journals, web resources and on how to search within your subject.
