EUR staff and students also have off-campus access to e-journals, e-books, online articles and files for which the University Library has acquired a license:
Via the Library website
When searching for scholarly information from home via sEURch, Databases A-Z or Guides by discipline, you only have to log in with your ERNA-account when prompted. No special settings or software are required.
Via Google Scholar
Are you searching for scholarly information in Google Scholar? You may hit upon a link that is not enabled off campus. You may receive a warning that your IP address is unknown, a vendor’s login screen may appear, or payment is required.
Often, you can enable off-campus access by setting up Library Links in your Google Scholar settings. You will immediately see if you have access through the FULL TEXT @ EUR link behind a publication.
Any other way
Are you searching for scholarly information in another way? For example in Google, or other search engine, or via a direct link and you have no access to a publication? You can often solve this by installing the Lean Library extension. This is a one-time installation.
Set up Library links in your Google Scholar settings to check if EUR Library has access to e-journals, e-books or online articles found with Google Scholar.
- Go to Google Scholar;
- Click the menu button at the top left of the screen (three horizontal lines).
If Scholar displays in Dutch, click the link Google Scholar in English (under the search box);
- Click Settings (or, if working on a small screen, the gear wheel icon), then Library links;
- Type "Erasmus University Library" into the search box and click the search icon;
- Check the box at “Erasmus University Library - FULL-TEXT @ EUR”
- Click Save.
Your search result in Google Scholar will display a FULL TEXT @ EUR link for those publications available from the EUR Library. Click the FULL TEXT @ EUR link, log in with your ERNA-account when prompted and access the publication.
The video Get the most out of Google Scholar (2:25 min) shows you how to configure your Google Scholar settings to show FULL TEXT @ EUR links.
(available for Google Chrome, Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera)
By adding this extension in to your browser, the process of accessing publications for which the library has acquired a license will be simplified.
The Lean Library extension is easy to download from: https://leanlibrary.com/download
- Download and install the extension;
- The extension appears as a small grey button at the top right corner;
- Select “Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR)”
- Uncheck “Skip the popup and automate my access”
- Click Save.
If you visit a website licensed by the EUR, the pop-up appears and the small grey button turns green. Click the Library Access button in the pop-up and log in with your ERNA account when prompted. You may also see a pop-up with an Access Article button or an ebook available notification. The EUR has access to the article or the e-book but via a website other than the website you are currently visiting. Click the button or notification to be forwarded and gain access.
