Linking to licensed e-resources: E-books

Linking an electronic book

A direct link to an e-book is built by using Libproxy server. It works like this:

  • In Aalto University landline network they work as an ordinary link to the book.
  • When used via any other connection your are first directed to Aalto identification and then granted access into the e-book.

To create a libproxy link to an individual e-book, do as follows:

  • Go to Finna database
  • Copy the link at E-kirja/E-book to clipboard

  • Use the link as a casual hyperlink, for instance in the Mycourses environment.
