Online resources

Most of the resources the Library purchases are online so you have access to the resources you need from anywhere at any time.

Finding online resources

There are three ways of finding online resources on the Library website:

Accessing online resources

You can access most online Library resources with your University username and password. When you follow links to online resources from the Library website (from Library Search, the Databases A-Z or My Subject), you will often see the University Sign in page. You will be asked to sign in more often when you are working off campus.

A few online journals, ebooks and databases require you to enter a different username. If you follow a link to a resource on the Library website which requires a different login, you will be directed to a page with additional login details and instructions.

Online collections

We have curated online collections of Library resources (online and in print) on topics such as LGBTQ+ history, Black history and University research.

Accessibility of online resources

Ebooks, journals and databases offer different accessibility features, such as read aloud functions and options to change the text and background. The Accessibility of online resources guide outlines the features available on some of our ebook platforms and databases.
