EZproxy technology was launched on the Portal of electronic information resources. EZproxy provides another way of remote access to licensed resources, the use of which is limited to the Palacký University computer network.
The advantage of EZproxy is its simplicity, but it is necessary to connect to resources directly here on the portal using EZproxy links, which the portal generates for individual resources.
At the same time, smart links were set up on the portal, which will make access to resources even easier.
Based on whether the user wants to access the resource directly from the university network or elsewhere, the portal itself offers a suitable link, i.e. direct access address, Shibboleth or EZproxy link.
All you have to do is "Connect to the resource" on its page here on the portal or click on the source name, e.g. in the alphabetical list.
Users who want to choose the method of remote access themselves can use the appropriate links on the page of the selected source, see the instructions for EZproxy and Shibboleth.
In addition, it is possible to use a VPN connection in which your computer becomes part of the UPOL network.
For detailed information and the direct link to register see this page (please register with your university e-mail).

The Full Scripts Database Movie Scripts Online contains scenarios of about 1500 American films, such as Ben Hur, JFK, Casablanca, Bonnie and Clyde, Platoon. Some of them have never been printed. This highly structured archive offers a bibliographic and biographical database of directors and writers along with the entire text of the films themselves.
We watch, discuss and analyze movies, but we rarely read scenarios. While some of the familiar movie scripts appeared in printed form, most of them have never been published in any format. Researchers have difficulty finding original scripts, acting and gaining authority from holders who are often reluctant to borrow rare and unique documents.
Documents allow you to "watch" the film with the author's perspective, which sometimes differs from the final version. Each scenario is supplemented by bibliographic and biographical (including character and character list) data, a breakdown of individual scenes, and basic information about both the screenwriter and the director. The database also stores individual scenarios.
Take advantage of the FREE trial access to this unique database, until December 1, 2018!
