If you are a student studying entirely online, i.e. studying an online programme, you should primarily access our E-Resources via the Library for Online Programmes rather than physical library resources.

If you are studying entirely online and were trying to log into the Library Catalogue ("My Library Record") and see an error message, this is because online students are not usually added to this Library system, which is used primarily to manage our shelf (physical) collections.

Your University login allows you to view many individual online platforms and collections such as Discover, SCOPUS, Web of Knowledge etc. If you wish to save personal preferences/ bookmarks and other personal settings in these platforms, you will also need to self-register for a personal profile within these individual platforms; each individual collection or platform has its own personal profile system. Please see the following guide on creating a personal profile in Discover, our main multi-source platform also see our guide on using a personal profile in other platforms.

Note - after you have logged into Library Web pages/ E-Resources with your University login you will also need to log into individual platforms using the individual profile credentials you created within that particular platform.

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. Also see our guides, videos, tutorials and Library Training Module available via the Library for Online Programmes.
