The use of e-books and other e-media is possible with some providers (see list below) not only by logging on to the university network via VPN, but also by logging on with your own computer centre account. The registration via CC/RZ-Account works via Shibboleth. Shibboleth is a method for distributed authentication (Who are you?) and authorisation (What are you allowed to access?) for web applications.
With Shibboleth, employees and students of the University of Regensburg can also access the licensed electronic media of the University Library outside of VPN with some providers (see below).
You only have to authenticate yourself once via the respective provider's site at your home institution using your RZ ID (CC ID) to gain access to the licensed content (web-based Single-Sign-On). This registration is then also valid for other providers with whom we have activated Shibboleth and you do not have to register again with your RZ-ID within a certain period of time.
