Access to National Licences

In order to sustainably improve the supply of electronic subject information at German universities, research institutions and academic libraries, the German Research Foundation has been funding the acquisition of national licences since 2004.

You can access national licences inside and outside the campus network.

Eight institutions have currently concluded national licence agreements with professional societies, publishers and other information providers. These institutions are also the contact persons for the provision of the data.

Further information on the national licences can be found at
