Logging in to e-resources

Students and staff have access to thousands of electronic resources including journal articles, electronic books, reports, conference proceedings, reviews, datasets, maps and audio visual material across a wide range of academic disciplines to support learning, teaching and research in the University. 

Find out more on our LibGuides page.

Note that some resources (e.g. Science Direct), require you to additionally register a name, email and password as an individual user, the first time you use the resource as a member of the University. This separate registration allows you to use personalised features such as saved searches and creating search alerts, journals alerts and more.

Elsevier have suggested some workarounds for the problem. View or download the help sheet for information.
