Access to databases

Members of the Croatian academic community have access to databases under the Cooperation Agreement between National and University Library in Zagreb and Ministers of Science, Education and Sports.

Access from institutional computers to all subscribed electronic information sources is provided directly through computers’ IP addresses, while those outside the IP range of the institution can access them through proxy servers. Proxy can be used by all members of the Croatian academic community with an active AAI@EduHr user account, which is used to log in to a proxy server. Proxy is accessed via Portal of electronic sources for Croatian academic and scientific community.

All databases with a national licence in Republic of Croatia can be accessed via Portal of electronic sources for Croatian academic and scientific community.
