Using the University Library at home and on the go

Searching our catalogue and managing your library account – all users

Wherever you are, you can search our catalogue, manage your library account, renew loans and reserve items.

Reading e-books, e-journals & databases at home and on the go – University of Würzburg members only

Log into the university network using your JMU-account (Informations for University Hospital employees).

You can do this in three ways:

  • Not all licensed services are available via this method.

Proceed as follows:

  • Register on the EZProxy login page.
  • Open the catalogue, database information system or the electronic magazine library and conduct your research.
  • Call up the content you need, for example using the "full-text button" in the catalogue.
  • Or use one of the EZProxy direct links to the providers.


  • You will know that you are connected to the EZProxy when the internet address in the browser is followed by: "ezproxy.bibliothek.uni-wuerzburg.de"
  • Make sure to log out of external devices; otherwise, the session will end after two hours.

Proceed as follows:

  • Call up the website with the content you want to read.
  • Look for the institution’s login option – this may be named Login, Shibboleth Login, Remote User, Institutional Login or Access Management Federation.
  • Select the German universities (Germany, DFN-AAI, Ger) and then the University of Würzburg (UB Würzburg, University of Würzburg, Julius-Maximilians-Universität or University Library Würzburg)
  • The WueLogin page will then appear. Log in with your JMU account.


  • WueLogin is a Shibboleth process provided by the University.
  • If you are using a mobile device, we recommend selecting the "Full Site" view.

  • Install the VPN-Client and go to "Group > Publisher access/Library" to set it up.
  • For instructions and help with installation, contact the Information Technology Centre.

Please note that while most e-book, e-journal and database providers can be accessed from home or when travelling, some may not be available.
