Access is available to members of the institutions of our circle of users from 2 April 2020 to 15 August 2020. Authentication is based on the IP numbers of the respective network.

A VPN or other remote connection is required when working in the home office. If you are not allowed to enter your facility due to the current situation and access via remote connection is not possible – log in as a single user! We offer you a quick and uncomplicated login.


The provider made its databases available to us immediately and free of charge as “e-Marefa Initiative for Free Access”. They would like to make a contribution to the supply of literature during the worldwide closure of libraries. We gladly accepted this offer and organised the access together with the KfL.
