About the AIRE Portal
AIRE stands for Accesso Integrato alle Risorse Elettroniche (Integrated Access to Electronic Resources) and was set up to help retrieve information contained in the electronic resources of the University Library System.
You can use the Aire Portal both to search different electronic resources at the same time and to browse the University list of databases.
It is based on MetaLib software integrated with SFX® linking technology produced by Ex Libris and it has been in service since 9 October 2006.
The Portal can be accessed by anyone connected to the University intranet. However, only teaching staff, students and employees of Padova University can use the advanced functions of the Portal (accessible with authentication) and consult the Portal from home, using Auth-Proxy
