Remote Access to Online Resources

The Library and Historical Archives Service and CED INAF have activated, through the IDEM Federation of the GARR network, a remote access system to the electronic information resources currently available through IDEM. This modality has the advantage of allowing access to online resources even from external locations from their own institutions (eg. from home, airport, etc.).

IDEM Account

All INAF employees have credentials to access the services made available by the Institution. If you do not already have the IDEM credentials, simply register at the Identity Provider  (IDP) system of CED INAF and get an  account. The obtained credentials will be needed to access various services (eg .: Nilde, EduRoam, Filesender, video conferencing, etc.).


Online journals

The updated list of journals and digital resources is available on the web page Online journals and resources
