How can I access electronic journals and resources off campus?
Last Updated: Jul 26, 2019     Views: 4726

All of the online resources provided by the University Library are available for use both on and off campus.

The Passwords to Resources page lists all of the platforms where University Library resources are available and whether a username and password is required to access content on that resource platform. It also tells you when a different credentials than your own username and password will be required. Where a different access method is required off campus, this will be stated in the list.

Where off-campus access is noted as being via Simply Web, this means that the resource platform doesn’t support username and password access. Information to help you use Simply Web is available on the IT Support 365 page, under the WiFi and Remote Accesssection.

A list of all our current ejournal subscriptions can be accessed from the A-Z ejournals list on the Library Search homepage.

A list of all our current electronic database subscriptions can be accessed from the A-Z databases link on the Library Search homepage.

On some platforms, you may be able to use the site without logging in, but may be required to do so when you wish to access content. Please be aware that in some cases you may need to click a link or button to login. Resource platforms may use different terms to indicate this, such as “Academic Sign In”, "Institutional Login", "UK Federation", "Shibboleth” or terms to that effect.
