Off-campus access (to online resources)

Who is entitled?

  • Students of the University of Göttingen
  • Employees of the University of Göttingen
  • External members of the University Medical Center Göttingen and other faculties of the University of Göttingen

Due to legal restrictions off-campus access is not permitted for members of other universities or private citizens.

Having trouble with accessing the resources? Most common errors:

  • User number and password are not correct. Please check if you mistyped the dates, or have them checked at the service desks.
  • You have tried to access a resource directly via a provider’s website (e. g. a publisher) and try to log in there (for example via „Login through your library or institution“)? That is not a valid option for Göttingen university users and does not work. Always use the access routes Göttingen University Catalogue (GUK) or the Electronic Journals Library (EZB) or the Datenbank-Infosystem (DBIS) and from there select the required resource. Then automatically the correct log-in site of our HAN authentification server will be shown.
  • You are not an authorized user: employees and students of the University of Göttingen only have access to licensed electronic material from outside campus.
  • Check also for further restrictions of access, a few resources are for example only available on campus directly.
  • ‘Beck’ as a provider of databases and electronic journals only allows access on campus directly, unless you are member of the academic staff or a professor at the University of Göttingen.
  • Please do not hesitate to contact us at Information and Service Desk should you require further information.
