Electronic information resources

Electronic Information Resources (EIZ) are professional resources for science, research and study.

The University Library offers licensed (paid) EIZ as well as high-quality, freely available resources, and limited-term EIZ (so-called trial accesses).
Under the licensed EIZ, the library provides access to full texts of scholarly articles, e-books, metrics for evaluating scientific publications, citations, and others.

Use a university computer network to access licensed EIZ. For external access (eg from home, abroad) use remote access.

HOW TO SET UP THE REMOTE ACCESS (for employees and students of UPJŠ):
