Wherever you are, at home or elsewhere outside the premises of Leiden University, you’ll have access to e-journals, databases and e-books.
When outside the university premises, just log in to the Catalogue with your ULCN account. Search for the title or subject of your interest and click View Online (if available). In most cases a login window will appear where you can log in the same way as before. Next, you’ll gain access to the digital version. To access some of our e-books you will also have to install certain software. Remote access is only available for Leiden University students and staff.
The browser extension UBL Get Access provides access to scholarly articles and e-books whilst browsing the web.
Remote access for alumni
Alumni of Leiden University can access some databases from our collection from home. See the webpage services for Leiden University alumni for more detailed information.
