External access (EZproxy)

External access to databases and electronic full text via EZproxy


The external access to databases, electronic journals and e-books, which have been licensed for the university and the university hospital, is possible only for:

  • Employees of Paracelsus Medical Private University
  • Physicians at the SALK university hospital
  • Students at Paracelsus Medical Private University

EZproxy makes the access to licensed electronic resources from your home possible. This service functions without the installation of additional software. You need only a web browser.

How to use this service:

  • Log in to the EZProxy homepage with your PMU user ID:


  • After a successful login, you access the homepage of the library. Select on the library site the online catalogue, e-books, the database information system DBIS or the electronic journals library EZB. Search there as usual the desired databases, journals or e-books. (except for the UpToDate database).
  • When you enter a URL directly in the address line of the browser or call sites through the library homepage which do not lead to providers of our licensed offers, you leave the external access-proxy automatically. In such a case, access the EZproxy start page again or use the back-button in your browser. 

If you are still connected through EZproxy, the URL contains the affix "".


If you do not work on your own computer, you should, in any case, log out at the end of your session.

Alternatively: Log in later with the bookmarklet of EZproxy

You are not logged in to EZproxy, go to a site with content that is licensed for the PMU/SALK network and want to access, for example, an article in the New England Journal of Medicine. Click on the bookmarklet (save it beforehand as favourite/bookmark) which leads to the EZproxy login. After the successful login, you redirected tothe article site, but now you have access to the full text.

On the websites of some providers, the bookmarklet does not work, e.g. Verlag Thieme and Web of Science.

Install a bookmarklet:


Add a bookmark applet to the Favourits (IE) by a right click or add a bookmark (Firefox), or pull the button in the bookmarks bar (Google Chrome, Safari).
