Most of the licensed e-resources are available to all within the University of Eastern Finland network. In practice, this means that the library users who do not have the UEF user name and password can access the licensed e-resources only on the computers in the campus libraries. The KUH staff members can access the e-resources within the KUH network.
The following user groups can access the e-resources outside the university network via a remote access connection and the UEF Finna:
- UEF staff members
- UEF degree and postgraduate students
- UEF Open University students
- so-called cross-institutional students (students studying at the University of Eastern Finland through cooperation agreements between institutions)
- UEF MBA students
- UEF Psychotherapist Training students
- UEF specialisation studies students
- KUH staff members
The KUH staff members who are not also students or staff of the university (and therefore do not have a UEF username) can receive separate remote access rights by visiting the KUH Medical Library.
The rights to access the resources remotely are valid for the duration of the studies or employment. Remote access rights are valid only for students who have registered as being present. Students registered as absent are able to apply special remote access rights for a justified reason by filling a request form on the UEF e-Services website. The reason for absence must relate to the studies or other university functions. Within the form, please check the item labelled 'Library Electronic Collections (remote access)'. If you are unable to access the UEF e-Services website, please contact the UEF IT Service Desk.
