Accessing UB electronic resources

The E-Resources Access Service (SIRE) provides access to electronic information resources contracted by CRAI, from a computer/client/device inside or outside the University of Barcelona network. It is based on OCLC's EZproxy solution.


SIRE is aimed at University teaching and research staff (PDI), administrative and service staff (PAS), and students.



 You must be a member of the UB community: lecturer, student or member of the administrative and service staff.

Authenticate as a member of the UB (with UB or local identifier).

 The session is automatically closed after an hour of inactivity.

 The session can also be disconnected by entering the URL:

 If a massive download is requested and done (more than 200 MB in less than 15 minutes), the system blocks the user for two hours.




 Remember that the use of electronic resources is only authorized for academic purposes, not for profit or for professional activities outside the University.

 You must accept the terms & conditions once per year.
