Remote access to the electronic resources

If you are outside the university you can access to the electronic information resources by these means:

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

VPN provides access to all resources that a student or university employee has access to, such as when connected to a UPOL network.

It is necessary to set up (install) a VPN connection on your computer once, then use the access addresses to resources as in the UPOL network.

Please use the guide Access to the computer network via VPN for setting this connection on your computer.


Shibboleth does not require any special settings on your computer, it will only connect to resources that Shibboleth supports.

This connection is realized by logging in to the provider's site (links Sign In / Institutional Login / Shibboleth etc.) , using the identifying data valid for the Portal UP web. For more information see the Shibboleth page.

Resources with Shibboleth access


It is a simple connection via special EZproxy links, which are generated directly for individual sources by the Portal of electronic information resources.

Each resource listed here on the portal has its own EZproxy link on its page, in the section "Additional Information", see more here.
