The majority of Library resources are accessible online and from any location with your University username and password.
There are three ways of finding online resources on the Library website:
You can access most online Library resources with your University username and password.
When you follow links to online resources from the Library website, you will often see the University Sign in page. You'll need to sign in more often when you are working off campus.
Some online journals, ebooks and databases on the Library website require a different username and password. If you need a different login, you will see a link to the login details and instructions.
Ebooks, journals and databases often have read aloud functions, options to change the text and background, and other accessibility features. The Accessibility of online resources guide includes an overview of features available on our most popular ebook platforms and databases.
We've curated collections to provide easy access to relevant resources on topics like LGBTQ+ History, Black History, University research, employability skills, and reading for pleasure.
If you have suggestions for collections, please contact the Library.
