All employees and students at Lund University have access to most of our licensed electronic resources, such as databases, e-journals and e-books, from outside the campus network.
Start at the Kemicentrum library web page or start at any of the Lund University Libraries' web pages. Please note that you must access through the libraries web pages in order to access the licensed resources. Our library website is configured so that when you click a database link off campus, you will be prompted to login.
The easiest way to get access off campus is often to go to LUBsearch first and login as a guest with your Student ID or LUCAT account.
LU Full Text Finder is a symbol that take you to the fulltext or to a page with information about where you can get the article. Please note that some library databases and services require that you allow pop-ups in the web browser.
Before using Scifinder off campus you have to create an account on a computer connected to the University network. You have to use the student or staff e-mail:

If you cannot find a link with the proxy information included, add the proxy prefix in front of the URL. That prefix is: http://ludwig.lub.lu.se/login?url=
VPN (Virtual Personal Network)
You can also use a VPN connection. VPN is a technology that enables you to log in to the University's computer network wherever you are in the world. The VPN gives you an IP address belonging to Lund University. This means that you are taken to be directly connected to the network, which is required for certain services.
