How does it work

UBL Get Access is a browser extension that gives simple and quick access to academic articles, journals and databases licensed by the library when searching on the web.

When finding scientific articles on a website simply click UBL Get Access bookmark and log in with your ULCN account. Next you will gain access to the article without paying. Sometimes you will first have to press on the PDF-button to proceed.

If you don't get access or a warning screen appears the Library is probably not licensed for access. Check the library catalogue for a printed version or WorldCat for availability at another university library.
