'Internet-enabled PC' in the ULB
With your laptop in the ULB
A computer somewhere in the university Münster
From home or outside
With the Citrix Client (for CD-ROM databases)
For external users
In our category "research" you will find a variety of electronic offers: catalogues, bibliographies, lexica, full text databases, journals, etc. Not all offers are freely usable on the internet.
For licensing reasons, numerous journals and databases are only available on the university network for members of the university. You have unhindered access to these products on the PCs in the ULB or in the PC-pools of the University of Münster. Users of the ULB who are not members of the university also have access to the university network. The IP address of the computer from which the user accesses the product is the test criterion for the access authorization. Therefore, the products purchased and licensed by the ULB may only be used from PCs of the domain "uni-muenster.de" ("128.176.*.*"). When you are working on your PC at home or outside, you have to log in to the university network beforehand. You will find out how described at the bottom of this page.
Some journals and databases are available via Shibboleth for members of the university.
