Remote access via SHibboleth

Logo Shibboleth

Shibboleth is a technology, which provides mechanisms for authentication in a computer network. It is supported at Masaryk University and allows remote access to selected electronic information resources outside the university network.

By now there are available several resources, for example Ovid, EBSCO, Cambridge, Web of Science, Science Direct and Scopus. A complete list of shibbolized resources is available here. We are expecting to be supported more resources in the future. Resources which support Shibboleth have this icon Shibboleth.

You do not need any extra settings to use Shibboleth.
