Students and employees at Linköping University get access to library e-resources with their LiU-ID. When you click a link to one of our e-resources, a box will appear where you sign in with your LiU-ID and password.

Your LiU-ID consists of the first three letters in your first name, the two first letters in your last name and a two or three digit number combination. For example:
