Access to e-resources from home

Login to databases and e-resources

To be able to use the library’s databases and e-resources when you are outside of campus, for example from home, it’s important that you start of from the Library website. The links to e-resources from the University Library website are created in a way that let you identify yourself as a user from University of Borås.

When you choose a database by clicking the link, you are asked to login. Use your University of Borås user credentials to do so. All databases and e-resources with a linked title are accessible when you are outside of campus. You will find them on the web page Search information, for example:

Google Scholar

It's possible to use Google Scholar for access to the Library materials in full text. To be able to do that, you have two alternatives:

  1. Use the link to Google Scholar in the database list 
  2. Make a setting in Google Scholar. In Google Scholar, go to Settings and choose Library Links. Choose Högskolan i Borås - Primo - Fulltext@Högskolan Borås as your Library
