Access to e-resources
Getting access to journal articles, e-books and databases – this is how it works:
Access to licensed e-resources
Use the links to databases, journals and e-books from the library’s website. These go to a service that authenticates you as a user from Malmö University, and you log in with your computer identity.
You must be an active student and registered in Ladok, or staff and registered in Primula, in order to gain access from your own computer or outside the university’s network.
If you are not a student or staff member at Malmö University, you can only use the e-resources from the computers in the library.
Alternative access route for databases
For some of the library’s licensed e-resources there is an alternative access route activated. You sign in to the databases interface using your Malmö University computer identity, instead of using the library links via proxy server.
This service is called Shibboleth and is usually found via the Sign in link at the e-resource interface. Sign in Institution/Shibboleth/SWAMID/ and Malmö university or Malmö högskola.
