University members have the opportunity to use licensed library resources from off-campus.
Library users who do not belong to the university are given access to all online services after registering at the information desk at the library's PC workstations.
To access most of our licensed resources(databases, electronic journals and newspapers, and Springer e-books, among others) from off-campus, access to the university network is required. Our IT Service Center offers this to university members via a VPN connection.
After installing the client program you can log in with your login data. You can find the program together with more detailed information on installing the client and logging in on the page Setting up a VPN of our IT Service Center.
If you have any questions or problems with your VPN connection, please contact the IT Service Center directly.
To use our e-book full texts licensed via ProQuest, university members can set up an account once. They then log in to the ProQuest platform - both within and outside the university's IP address range - using their user name and password, after which they can access the e-books.
You have free access to our e-books licensed through the aggregator Ciando on campus via IP authentication. In order to use Ciando e-books outside the university, a user account is required. As a university member, you can create this account as described in our instructions. Afterwards, you log in to the Ciando platform outside the IP address range of the university with your university email address and password and can then access the e-books.
To access a few parts of our e-book offer, authentication via our library catalog ("Log in" function) with the login data (user number on the StudiCard or guest card or the employee ID of the Ludwigshafen School of Business and Society + password) is required.
