Access to e-resourcesElectronic resources, or e-resources, is an umbrella term for e-articles, e-books, e-journals, databases, websites, mobile interfaces etc. Off-campus, only LiU students and employees have access to the library's e-resources.
Check for access with LiU Full Text
If you have found an article or some other electronic material in one of our databases, you then check its availability by clicking on the button "LiU Full Text":
The button is located under each item in the hitlist, and in the abstract of the article. Sometimes it consists only of the text "LiU Full Text".
In the library’s search service UniSearch, the button has a different look:
As a student or employee at LiU, you can access the library’s e-resources while outside LiU’s network by logging in with your LiU-ID. E-resources that require LiU-ID identification have a URL that starts with https://login.e.bibl.liu.se/login?url=
For example, an electronic resource with the URL https://academic.eb.com/, will have the following appearance: https://login.e.bibl.liu.se/login?url=https://academic.eb.com/
Browser add-onsAn alternative to logging in with your LiU-ID is to use one of the following add-ons for easier access to journals when you're not on campus. Once you have found a resource that you want to access, click on the add-on, and the page will be loaded through the proxy service. Sometimes you have to reload the page manually.
• Install EZProxy Redirect
• Right-click on the book icon that appears next to the URL field in Chrome and go to "Options"
• Choose "Linköping University" in the menu "Select school"
• Install EZProxy Redirect Foxified
• In the Firefox menu, go to Extensions and select Settings for EZProxy EZProxy Redirect Foxified
• Select “Linköping University” under “Select School”
If you use FortiClient VPN service, you automatically have access to library resources off-campus. Note that this is not the case if you are using Cisco Anyconnect. Then you need to log in to library resources in one of the ways described above.
