External Online Access
External online access provides access for certain library users to electronic media, such as electronic books, journals, and specialist data bases from outside the university network. These media are fee-based services provided by publishers to which Marburg University Library subscribes. Access to these licensed media is available to members of Marburg University and library visitors free of charge.

Access from outside the university network is confined to staff and students of Marburg University. Other users can access these electronic media only from within the relevant university premises.

There are different possibilities. Most importantly, you need a valid account from the Hochschulrechenzentrum (HRZ – University Computer Center):
Access via the Virtual Private Network (VPN) requires installation and provides access to almost all e-media => Installation files and further information on VPN
Access via Shibboleth does not require installation. However, it does not (yet) allow access to a small number of e-media => for further information see below
Access via WebVPN also needs no installation but in this case internet addresses must be entered into the WebVPN line and not into the browser address line (see image below) => WebVPN-Login and further information on WebVPN.
You have to install a programme before you are able to use the Virtual Private Network (VPN) => Installation files and further information on VPN.
Then you only have to open the installed programme “Cisco Client,” login with your HRZ account and your entry into the university network is completed.

Pro internet session you must click on the HRZ Web-Login, in order to authenticate yourself to a publisher.
The HRZ Web-Login path differs from one provider/publisher to another but usually takes place on the publisher’s internet page via an (institutional) Login, Deutschland/German Higher Education/DFN-AAI and Philipps-Universität Marburg.
If you change publisher, then you usually have to select Philipps-Universität Marburg again but you do not need to re-enter your password.
Not every publisher or database provider offers this authentification service.
You can find a current list of participants under https://www.aai.dfn.de/verzeichnis/sp-dfn-aai/. If you cannot gain access to any of thesepublishers/providers, please get in contact with Susanne Waldmann, E-Mail: email@example.com.

First, log into the page https://vpn.uni-marburg.de.
Bookmarks do not function directly. After Login, internet addresses have to be entered/copied directly into the WebVPN line (see first image).
If a page is running in WebVPN mode, then four symbols are always displayed in the upper right-hand corner (see second image). The functions of this small menu list are: arrow: move the menu bar, globe: enter new address, house: go to WebVPN homepage, red globe: logout.
