Students, PhD students and members of Staff of the University of Economics in Katowice can use all the subscribed databases remotely via Proxy server, as long as they have an email account in the EU server and have configured their computers properly:
From January 1, 2015, the University of Silesia Library offers a new way of remote access to databases and electronic sources through the HAN system. The previously used OneLog will no longer be used.
Who can use the HAN System?
- Students, PhD students and post-graduate students of the University of Silesia,
- Employees and retired employees of the University of Silesia.
How to use the HAN system?
In order to use any of the databases you need to choose a link (marked as HAN UŚ) located on the CINiBA website in the Electronic Sources tab. Each database has its own individual link; they can be found in the descriptions of individual databases or in the alphabetical and subject list. After clicking on the appropriate link a window for logging in will appear, in which login (pesel or library card number) and the password used in the electronic catalog (OPAC) should be entered.
What to do if user cannot log into the HAN system?
If your account has been blocked or the late return fee has not been cleared, please pay the fee and return the books or extend the deadline. If your account is blocked, you will not be able to use remote access.
Does the HAN system require configuration?
HAN does not require additional installation or browser configuration.
For databases marked han/netman, browsers that support the full HTML 5 standard should be used. ie: Google Chrome 11 (or higher), Apple Safari 5 (or higher), Firefox 4 (or higher), Microsoft IE 10 (or higher), Opera (the latest).
Changes concerning use of computer stations
Authentication for Library users using the Internet has been introduced (open access). Access to the resources of the University of Silesia and the University of Economics Library will not require logging in - every visitor to the Library will be able to use them. Only when trying to connect to addresses outside the University (Google, Facebook, Onet, etc.) it will be necessary to provide user credentials - a message will appear in the web browser. However, it will be required only during the first access attempt. The data will be stored for the whole time of the User's work (at a given station).
Data necessary for logging in
Internet access is available to anyone with a:
- library account. The way of logging in: The same as for the "CINiBA" WIFI network
- or an account in the eduroam system (https://www.eduroam.pl/). The same as for the "eduroam" WIFI network
End of work
User should log out of the system after finishing work.
For Linux devices, press the "System Exit Menu" button (button right corner of the screen), and then press the "Exit Work" button
For Windows devices, press the "Exit Work" button on the desktop (button right corner of the screen).
Users of both systems will not have the ability to turn off their computers.
If the User does not log off by himself, after 20 minutes of inactivity, the User's session will be automatically disconnected and the login data will be deleted. However, if another person starts using the station during this time, it will take over the login data of the predecessor. A message will appear on the desktops of the devices informing the user to exit.
