Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall is back!

Access to Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall is restored, after a few days of unexpected interruption. They updated their website causing some technical issues that needed correction. Many thanks to the library’s subscription resources team for their prompt response and resolution!

If you like to enter the Berlin Phil Digital Concert Hall as follows, you should have no problem accessing the site after logging in (UCID + password and DUO authentication):

  • on the CCM Library home page, through “Top Resources” > “Online Video”
  • through the library’s A-Z list of databases

If you use another link, it’s possible it needs updating. Here’s the working URL address:
https://uc.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://www.digitalconcerthall.com

As before, UC patrons have two options: 1) Direct Access or 2) Login by creating a personal account that will enable additional features like playlists and email notifications. BOTH OPTIONS WORK for UC patrons.

Accessing Online Library Resources

ACCESSING ONLINE LIBRARY RESOURCES

  • From 10 August 2021, access to licensed online library resources (whether on or off campus) requires user authentication by logging in with a UC username + password and Duo Two Factor authorization.
    This means: When you are accessing library resources via the catalog or website, you will be prompted to log in. You need to authenticate even if you have the VPN on. You no longer need to log in via the “Off Campus Access” button, and the “Off Campus Access” page has been eliminated.
    More information on accessing online licensed library resources and help with troubleshooting problems is available at the Access Library Resources : FAQs.
  • Over the summer, the UC Libraries updated its proxy service. URLs for licensed online resources have been updated. If you try a link and it doesn’t work, scroll down to “Authentic/Proxy Link Troubleshooting.”
    If you need to update or generate a link, use the proxy link generator or proxy link converter.

If you have any questions about accessing library resources, contact Dr Jenny Doctor, head of the CCM Library.
