Users with valid registration to work with e-resourece from their particular devices or computers outside of MBU Metropolitan Network can use remote access. Remote access is provided through Virtual Private Network (VPN). With a VPN, you work wtih e-resources, like from computers at a university.


How can you set up remote access?

  • install the OpenVPN client,
  • download and set up the LIBRARY-VPN configuration file,
  • start the VPN client (use the same login name and password as for the University e-mail account),
  • enter the University Library website into the search engine and select e-resources you would like to work with,
  • do not forget to log out the VPN client when you have finished working with e-resources.

Instructions for installing and setting up the client and configuration file are accessible on If the portal requires a login, use the same login name and password as for the University e-mail account.
