u:access


For legal reasons, access to electronic resources licensed by the Vienna University Library is limited to staff and students of Vienna University. To grant these users unlimited worldwide access to these resources, we are using the service u:access.

Users without a u:account

Library users without a u:account cannot use u:access and therefore cannot use their own computer or mobile device to access licensed electronic resources. They can, however, access these resources from certain computers located in the main library and special libraries.
