Eresources

How to access our electronic databases and journals

Introduction

Eresources are databases of scholarly and other specialized content purchased or subscribed to by institutions and companies to support the work of their members. The University subscribes to a range of journals, ebooks and other collections from different providers and publishers to assist the learning, teaching and research activities of our staff and students. See our Collections PolicyAccess is via the My Learning / Learning Support or Student page in the portal.

The Library should always be your first port of call for book and online information resources. During and after the outbreak, please do not pay any publisher or provider directly for access to materials, even if that platform previously provided them to you for free as part of a trial or to help during the outbreak.
