Off-campus access

via the Proxy Server

If you want access to e-books and e-journals outside the UMCG / RUG network, you must first log in to the proxy server. Once logged in, you have access to our entire online collection.

When do you need to log in?

You will only need to log in if you want to consult the library sources from outside the network.
Please note: 'UMCG Anywhere' and the Next Gen laptops do NOT automatically give access to our digital collection. Our advice is therefore to ALWAYS start your search for literature or resources on this library website. That ensures that the proxy login starts at the moment you want access.

Be aware that 'UMCG Anywhere' and also the Next Gen laptops are NOT automatically identifying properly for access to our digital collection.
