Collaboration and Knowledge

Members of the Iscte community have at their disposal a varied set of collaboration and knowledge tools.


The b-on (online knowledge library) provides scientific and academic communities, including students, professors and researchers from research institutions and higher education, with unlimited and permanent access to thousands of journals and ebooks from some of the leading providers of international scientific content.

Since the access control of the contents is validated by IP address, navigation must be carried out from the Iscte network. That is, outside of Iscte installations, you need to connect the VPN.
