Online access

When you are searching for literature online, the university library offers access to scientific sources.

Connected to a UU network

Are you logged in with your Solis ID and password or UMC account on a desktop computer or connected to the Eduroam Wi-Fi network of Utrecht University on your own device? Then you have access to all subscripton-based online resources of the library.

Not connected to a UU network

Log in by clicking on the button below to get access from home to licenced sources via the library. If you consult the search engines via the links which you see after logging in, you have access to the publications, provided that it is licenced material or freely available material.

Extra authentication

To prevent hacked UU accounts from being used to log in to publishers of licensed materials, the university library is introducing extra authentication. That means patrons will use two seperate ways to gain access to sources. Firstly with a Solis-ID and then via SMS. Only in regions where misuse of compromised UU-accounts is known will patrons be asked to use extra authentication.
