Online information resources for studying

Depending on your degree program, you may often or even primarily work with digital information resources. You can find these in or through the university library.


DATABASES

The library offers you access to numerous databases in all subject areas:


E-JOURNALS AND E-BOOKS

The library also offers you online access to academic journals and e-books.


TRAINING


ACCESS to e-media

The library’s online resources can be accessed in two ways:

  • On university computers e.g. in the library’s workspaces
  • From outside the library on your private computer via VPN

  • Both ways require you to use your Unibas account.*


ACCESS TO SWISSCOVERY LIBRARY CATALOGUE:

To create a library account and order/borrow media, link your SWITCH edu-ID to swisscovery here. This only needs to be done once. After that, you can log in to your library account using your SWITCH edu-ID.

Information about e-media and swisscovery: ub.unibas.ch/de/services

Please note: to access these services, you need both a SWITCH edu-ID and a library account.
