Linking to licensed e-resources: Databases

Linking databases

A direct link to a database is built by using Libproxy server. It works like this:

  • In Aalto University landline network it works as an ordinary link to the database.
  • When used via any other connection your are first directed to Aalto identification and then granted access into the database.

Thorough lists of databases and their libproxy links can be found from:

You can easily copy the links to be used for instance in Mycourses.

Compilation of database types

In the guides of the Learning Centre there are essential resources grouped by types and fields of science.

All the links provided in the guides are in the libproxy form. They can easily be used like casual hyperlinks for instance in Mycourse.
