Access E-Resources from Off-Campus

TU members (students and staff) can use the VPN or Shibboleth service to access licensed E-resources (E-Books, E-Journals, databases) from outside the TU campus network.

Please note: these services are only available to current TU members with a TUB-Account.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

When using the VPN service you will be assigned a TU IP address. After having set up VPN access you can log in with your TUB-Account name and password. You now can access most electronic resources offered by the University Library. 

How to set up VPN access

Shibboleth (Single Sign-on)

Several online resources can also be accessed via Shibboleth. Shibboleth can be used without installing additional software on your computer.

When you first access a resource during a browser session you will have to sign in at the TU Shibboleth login screen. Please use your TUB-Account name and password.
By closing the browser the Shibboleth session will be finished automatically. 

Additional information on Shibboleth



In DBIS (our Database Information System) databases which can be accessed via Shibboleth are identified by „Weitere lizenzierte Zugänge: Zugang für TU Angehörige außerhalb des IP-Bereichs der TU (Shibboleth)“.
