Access rights to electronic resources

Jyväskylä University Library has acquired electronic resources (databases, e-journals & books, reference books) mainly via Finnish National Electronic Library (FinElib), but also as it's own acquisition. Staff and students can use e-resources from any computer connected to the University of Jyväskylä network. With JyU user identification staff and students also have remote access to resources from anywhere outside the University of Jyväskylä (home, abroad etc.).  Outsiders of the University of Jyväskylä do not have remote access to the licensed electronic resources of Jyväskylä University Library.
