Leiden University students and staff can access the libraries' e-journals, databases and e-books from anywhere in the world.
When outside the university premises, first log in to the Catalogue with your ULCN account. Search for the title or subject of your interest and click View Online (if available). Usually, another ULCN logon window will appear before you can access the publication. To access our e-books, you will often be required to install some software. Remote access is available for Leiden University students and staff only.
The browser extension UBL Get Access provides access to scholarly articles and e-books whilst browsing the internet.
Remote access for Leiden University alumni
Leiden University graduates have remote access to several of the databases offered by the library. See the webpage services for Leiden University alumni for more detailed information.
