  4. How does home acces via the Catalogue work?

1. Home access with an ULCN-account
Employees of the Leiden University or the LUMC are offered the option to access electronic information sources from home, including online journals and electronic catalogues. A ULCN-account is requrired for this service. Employees of the LUMC who have a contract with the Leiden University already have a ULCN-account. Employees of the LUMC without a Leiden University contract can request a ULCN-account at the Information esk of the Walaeus Library by registering in the Visitors Management System (gasten management systeem, GMS). You can find the recest form in Procedure verzoek tot registratie GMS (Procedure request GMS registration). Additional information regarding the use of the Catalogue using home acces can be found here.

Exceptions regarding the home access: A number of journals are only accessible from the computers within the LUMC for financial reasons. Home access using the Leiden Univerity Catalogue is not possible for these journals.

Problems with firewalls/access from other hospitals: Some institutions and private PCs have advanced firewalls that protect the internet connection. In order to facilitate the home access to sources, it may be necessary to open the gates of the firewall.The Catalogue of the Leiden University uses gate 8008, SFX of gate 9003 and the proxy server for the access to external documents (outside the Leiden University) is 2443. These are the minimum number of gates that need to be facilitated for access to documents.

2. External access to LUMC-network using access.lumc.nl 
It is possible for LUMC-employees to log onto the LUMC-net from home and use the online Walaeus Library safely. It also facilitates safe use of MS Outlook, H: and I: disks etc. Online access to journals, books and documents (e.g. Web of Science, PubMed and UpToDate) can also be accessed, including available fulltext articles.Every employee of the LUMC may use the external access to the LUMC-network (Externe toegang tot LUMC-netwerk). The I&A section of the division can request this access after approval by the supervisor. A manual including a request form can be found on Albinusnet. Please contact the Servicedesk ICT with problems regarding  the external access. The Servicedesk can also change the registered mobile telephone number.
