Remote access to e-media via Shibboleth

An Alternative to VPN

BTU members can now access our licensed e-books, electronic journals and three databases by various providers outside of the BTU campus network via Shibboleth. Instead of installing and activating the Virtual Private Network (VPN), you can log in with your own BTU account data.

Take a look at our current list of providers. Then look  search for terms like "Shibboleth", "Institutional Login", "Find your Institution" or similar on their websites. Often you  have to search for our institution ("BTU", "Cottbus" or "Brandenburgische") or find it in a list. Sometimes a regional preselection by "Germany", "German Higher Education" or "DFN-AAI" is possible or necessary.

You are always welcome to contact us with your questions.
