Access to e-media
The University Library of Bern provides a variety of electronic media such as e-books, e-journals and databases.
Many of these e-media are subject to a fee and would not be allowed to be made publicly accessible for licensing reasons.
In the research portal swisscovery University and PH Bern, these accesses are only displayed within the campus network, in contrast to freely accessible e-media.
The access options are described here:
Access to e-media on campus / in Bern university libraries
Access to e-media outside campus - at home and on the go
For non-university members / alumi outside the canton of Bern
Only freely accessible e-resources are available for external guests.
