Portal of electronic information resources

Masaryk University subscribes to online access to academic journals, book collections and other specialized information resources. These e-resources can be used by employees and students of Masaryk University on university computers and most of those even on computers outside the university (at home, etc.).

An overview of the resources available can be found on the website http://eresources.muni.cz. This site provides up-to-date information about e-resources including manuals and user support.

Medical e-resources and interdisciplinary e-resources containing medicine will be displayed.

On this webpage, you will find information about three types of remote access: VPN, EZproxy, Shibboleth.

Let us first focus on EZproxy and Shibboleth, because these do not require any application to be installed on your computer. You just use the links to the resources here on the portal.

Note: If you want to work with multiple e-resources outside of the Masaryk University network, you need to open each resource via the given link on the EIZ portal.

…A manual will display that helps you with installing and launching the OpenVPN application under various operating systems.

After you install the application, launch it and log in with your UČO and secondary password (see the manual for individual operating systems), then you can open the resources you want. After this step, your computer logs in to the website through the Masaryk University network, i.e. it is identified as one of the computers in the Masaryk University network.

Note: VPN distant access will only work with resources available across the entire Masaryk University network (i.e. if the access is limited to a faculty or workplace, access from your own computer will be denied).

You can use the Discovery service to search in the databases of journals and books accessible at MU. This service makes it possible to search through all the listed e-resources with one query.
