Electronic Resources

Utilizing e-resources

The AUEB Library and Center of Information has a large number of institutional subscriptions to electronic journals, books, and databases from reputable publishing houses and scientific organizations. The Library also provides access to consortium subscriptions to e-journals and e-books which are available to the academic community through , the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link). Additionally, it supports access to selected open-access academic content such as electronic scientific journals and open-access books and organizations' websites. If you are just beginning your research, we suggest that you begin by searching for online content that is available in the Library for the members of the AUEB academic community, using the EBSCO Discovery Service (user id and password are required for remote access outside the premises of the University).

IMPORTANT NOTE: For subscription electronic sources, access is available to everyone on the AUEB premises, using the computers that are connected to the University's network, with IP address control. For remote access to subscription sources (outside of the University premises) or for access via a Wi-Fi connection, user authentication is required; therefore you must have a user id and password from the University. This means that members of the AUEB academic community can access subscription electronic sources through computers that are connected to the University network. Remote users can also access electronic subscriptions using the University's VPN service. If you belong to the AUEB academic community but do not have an AUEB user id and password, please learn how to acquire them by reading the section "Passwords, Authentication and Remote Access", below. Please also read and learn about the policy for using the sources in order to comply with the rules. The use of subscription content is allowed only to those users who observe the terms and conditions of user permits.

Policy for use of e-resources

Please note that those who want to use the AUEB Library's e-resources must comply with the terms and conditions for their use. These state that users of the services that are available from external providers must comply with all the rules and codes of conduct that are in effect for those services. Specifically, it is up to the user of the service to check the terms and conditions for any and all permits for the use of software and information and to comply with them. Users must also adhere to Greek legislation about intellectual property. According to this legislation, it is a serious offence, punished by sanctions, to copy all or part of a work that is intellectual property. Please also note that providers are able to monitor any and all systematic copying of a digital work that is intellectual property.


Passwords, authentication & remote access

You will not be able to use certain services such as the databases with e-journals and e-books in the AUEB Library if your computer connects to the Internet via another provider (for example, with a non-student ADSL connection) and not through the AUEB network. This is also the case if your computer is in an organization or company or university outside of AUEB. You will need to connect your computer to the AUEB Network through the AUEB Virtual Private Network (VPN). When you have completed your research in the Library's databases, please disconnect from the VPN service immediately otherwise you may notice reduced speed in your Internet connection. Please read carefully the instructions for connecting to the AUEB Network.

For VPN access rights, you must be a member of the AUEB academic community and you must have a user account (with user id and password) for internet services at AUEB (e-mail, VPN, WiFi, e-Class). If you have not yet acquired a user account, please contact the Network Center at the University (210 8203900).

NOTE: If you have Student ADSL (diodos), which you acquired as a member of AUEB, then you do not need to use the VPN service.
