The previous section dealt with the literature of the first semester. But how do students get access to the library’s electronic books?
Some of the electronic resources for books, articles and journals can only be accessed from the university’s protected network. However, there is a way to connect to the network from home: The so-called VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Within the configuration you have the option to select one of two profiles:
- External: With this profile, only the traffic that would end up in the internal TU network anyway is routed through the VPN.
- Campus: With this profile, all your traffic is routed through the TU network, so you access the entire internet as if you were at the university. You should use this profile for books and articles.
