Library Service

The E-Journal-Pool of the University of Heidelberg presently includes 2988 journals open to members of the institute (click here).

You can access e-journals as well as online literature searches (Medline, Current Contents) from your home PC or at meetings abroad. In order to do so, you will need an individual personal authentification: Please obtain first a User ID from the UB (University Library branch office address INF 368, opening hours: Mon - Thurs. 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Fr. 9 a.m. - 3.30 p.m.). There you will receive a HEIDI User ID and your password. You will be required to type in this information when you want to read full texts or search online databases (provided that your Proxy setting (Netscape, Edit Menu, Preferences, Advanced, Proxy) are set to "Direct connection to the Internet")

If you don't have a HEIDI User ID and password, you must change your Proxy configuration to:

Automatic proxy configuration Configuration location (URL) and enter:

(Go to Preferences in Edit Menu of Netscape and change the option under Advanced Proxy).

Important: If you use a Macintosh computer, this method only functions with Netscape 4.x (not with Netscape 6.x and Internet Explorer).
