Remote access

Remote access is the connecting link between you and the publisher/supplier that allows you to move on to online resources - e.g. articles - from your browser.

All links on the library's homepage operate via remote access if possible.

How do I log on to Remote access?

If remote access is required to access an online resource, the system will ask you to log on via remote access using your email and password. You cannot log on the remote access service in advance.

What is my remote access login?

Your login is your or email address (researchers at Department of Clinical Medicine) and matching password. Login and password matches the information you use for loggin on to AAU webmail.

You do not have to contact the library to get remote access. If you have trouble loggin in, please contact AAU IT Services.
