You can access E-Resources using the Library for Online Programmes. You can also use the on-campus Library,however this site may display physical shelf items and bibliographic (abstract-only) results whereas the Library for Online Programmes is configured to display only Full Text E-Resources as far as possible.

You must log into the Library for Online Programmes before attempting to access E-Resources, once you have logged into the Library you will see our Discover multi-source platform and may access other individual commercial collections.

If you try to access individual commercial collections outside the Library, by visiting their homepage or via a normal Google search you will find you are not logged into commercial collections to access subscribed E-Resources (you can also see options to search Google using your University login in the Library for Online Programmes - searching Google via the Library will ensure you can access subscribed collections).

We suggest using our multi-source Discover platform as your starting point for keyword/ title searches for E-Books and E-Journal articles, you can find a large Discover search box on the homepage of the Library for Online Programmes and in the E-Resources page. The Discover search box includes checkboxes to refine your search to E-Journal articles, E-Books, Peer Reviewed items, Non-Restricted items (which can be fully printed/ downloaded) and Search by Title (rather than keywords). Further information on these options can be found by hovering your mouse pointer over options.

To go to a particular article you can also use the tool shown in the left menu of the Library for Online Programmes 'Go to an article', you'll need the journal name, volume, issue, year and start page.

You can see further multi-source e-journal platforms in the left menu 'Quick Search' area (e.g. Web of Knowledge, SCOPUS etc.). Also see the E-Resources page for options to search individual collections, data & Statistics, legal cases and materials, standards/ ISOs and further E-Book search options (including the Library Catalogue).

Also see our Brief Guide/ video for an overview of Library systems and services.

We provide a dedicated E-Learning Librarian to assist you in using Library resources. If you have any problems using the Library or technical problems, please see the Contacts area of the Library for Online Programmes.
