E-Books and E-Journals


The SULB provides the Saarland University with licenses for numerous e-books and e-journals from national and international providers.The full texts of the online resources can be accessed from all computers in the campus network. In addition, members of the UdS have access from their own terminals via WLAN eduroam or VPN (Virtual Private Network). All e-books licensed by the SULB and available royalty-free resources can be searched via the Saarland Virtual Catalogue.

The terms of use can vary greatly depending on the provider. Many e-books (e.g. by Springer, Wiley, De Gruyter) can be saved, copied and printed out without any problems - within the framework of the applicable copyright law. Other providers, on the other hand, provide their e-books with Digital Rights Management (DRM), so that only a certain number of pages can be downloaded, copied or printed or personal registration is required.

In the Electronic Journals Library (EZB) you will find a subject overview of the available e-journals.
