Jyväskylä University Library - at the Heart of Campus

Remote Access to Electronic Resources

Remote Access

Off-campus access to the electronic resources offered by the Jyväskylä University Library from outside the University network is possible via the JYKDOK search interface.

NB: Students won't be able to use the VPN connect for the present. Remote access to electronic resources via VPN has been restricted due the limitations on the network capasity.

Students of JYU can access electronic resources outside JYU's network via JYKDOK or by downloading the Lean Library browser extension.

For staff and students only!

Only staff and students of the University of Jyväskylä can use remote access and you need to have the University's user account to be able to log in to remote services.
