Dear remote access user, register as a library customer online

Due to library system change, remote access to e-resources via UEF Primo with UEF username and password requires registration as a library customer. To register as a customer, fill out the form. Registration doesn’t require picking up the library card – the card is required only for borrowing print materials. If you already have a library card, you don’t need to register again.
