Palacký University enables access to electronic information sources to all of UP students and academic employees exclusively for their academic use.

You can access licensed sources especially, which are under contract between UP and sources supplier. Electronic information resources are usually accessible from whole university, however, some of them might be restricted only to some faculties. Furthermore, some sources can be used by a limited number of users at the same time. You can access electronic resources only from computers connected to UP computer network or using VPN (except for Shibboleth resources). You can find all available electronic information resources at ezdroje.upol.cz. Users can access only some of the electronic information resources through the Shibboleth technology. However there is no need to set-up your computer to connect to these sources and you only need to know your login and password, which is your Portal ID and portal password.


Users can access various protected information sources available to UP through the Shibboleth technology easily without any previous computer set up. You can access licensed databases using only your Portal login and password.

How do I recognize Shibboleth resources?

Shibboleth databases are marked by a Shibboleth sign written in brackets (except for Science Direct and Scopus). Databases are available at http://ezdroje.upol.cz.
