For all members of Kiel University, some providers and publishers have opened parts of their unlicensed e-resources during the Corona crisis, allowing for temporary access via VPN. Our link list of providers and publishers will be updated continuously as new offers become available.

Your licensing request for e-books

You are a member of Kiel University and need a specific book not yet available here? Please feel free to make a licensing request, so that we can make your requested e-book available to all members of Kiel University immediately via on-campus access.
