Electronic resources

An up-to-date list is found in our Study guides.

The e-resources are in national or university access depending on the license agreement. A number of e-resources are also available in open access. Information regarding access is listed by each item.

National access 

The Iceland Consortium of e-journals and databases was established in 1999 and is funded by ministries, schools, libraries, research institutions and public and private companies. Its aim is to provide access to academic and scholarly content to everyone in Iceland via icelandic IP numbers. Current license agreements include e-journals, databases, citations databases and encyclopedias. In addition there is a licence for the Icelandic newspaper Morgunbladid, with a three year embargo.

University access

The National and University library holds an institutional license to e-journals and databases which are accessible in the library and on University Campus or with a VPN connection. A VPN (virtual private network) connection allows access to the University‘s computer system and e-resources subscribed to by the National and University Library. Instructions on how to set up a VPN connection are available at Reiknistofnun (computing services).
