Remote Access intro

Remote Access

Maastricht University students and staff members, as well as azM staff members have off-campus access to protected services and resources, like databases, e-journals and e-books of the UM Library.

We provide different solutions for remote access: 

You can choose the one that fits your situation and needs best.

 

Direct login

1. Direct login

You can log in directly with your UM or azM account using the following link: 

 

Library Login

This gives you access to all protected services and resources of UM Library for the duration of your browser session.

Read this article if you need further instructions.

 

Add the Library to your browser or dashboard

1a. Add the Library to your browser or dashboard

For the best user experience, you can add this button to your browser:

Library Login 

Chrome / Firefox
Drag the Library Login button to the bookmark bar of your browser 

Internet Explorer 
Right click on the Library Login button > Add to favorites > Create in Favorites Bar > Add

Dashboard shortcut

Log in while using the Online Library

1b. Log in while using the Online Library

When you start at the UM Library homepage, or on another level via a direct link or a search and you are not logged in yet (or you don't know), you have two options:

  • Click on the Library Login button on the top right. A login screen will appear if you're not connected yet. By logging in you can access all the provided sources and services. 
      
  • Just go ahead. There are several triggers that will activate the login screen if your are not connected. However, keep in mind that sometimes you will not pass a trigger point during your journey. This will result in limited access to full text. 

Again, you only have to log in once and access will be granted during the rest of your browser session.
