Off-campus access easier at the UvA

11 Mar

As from last 8th March UvA-students and staff do no longer need a client software (UvAvpn) to access e-journals and databases off-campus: when opening a database or an e-journal via the Library website, Catalogue or CataloguePlus, all you need to do is log in with your UvAnetID. Only one login will be needed per browser session.

When using Google Scholar, please adjust the settings beforehand by (searching and) selecting the link to University of Amsterdam (see screenshot), and thereafter access any available e-journal article via the UvA-linker.

P.S.: UvAvpn remains available (more information here). For any question regarding the new off campus access, please contact UBAcoach.
