Free University of Bozen-Bolzano


Purchased ebooks are seamlessly available on UNIBZ campus. Off-campus internal users may connect by clicking on the links and entering UNIBZ username and password. Titles available through the EBL platform are available for all the University Library members.

Ebooks are accessible either via each publisher or aggregator platform or via our Library catalogue.

The main advantage of the access via the catalogue is the availability of a unique access point to both printed books and ebooks purchased by any publisher. Disadvantage is some time gap between their publishing and their availability in the catalogue. Supplier platforms give the advantage of real time update (ebooks are available as soon as they are published).
