E-Resources: Home

Updates and Latest Information

24 May 2021

*** We have now migrated the e-resources back to the subject portal pages using new authentication.

Please use the subject guides for access to e-resources, or the A-Z LibGuides list.

Currently you may still need to use the Alternative Access page links for some e-resources rather than links in the catalogue. ***


These pages help you access the e-resources we currently have available and cover a range of our journal, specialised databases and e-books. The list is regularly updated with new titles as we establish alternative routes to access our subscriptions.

Please use the 'E-resources - Try here first' tab for access to e-resources, databases and journal providers.

If the e-resource you are looking for does not appear under the ‘E-Resources – Try here first’ tab or if access through this link is temporarily unavailable, please click on the 'E-resources - Try here second' tab. This provides another entry point wherever possible and also offers access to EBSCO and a few other e-resources that require a username and password.

If you are unable to access Reading Lists Online, please use this direct link


GlobalProtect VPN is required to access most Apps-Anywhere applications off-campus. It will also help you to access a number of our online e-resource journals and databases. We recommend that you download GlobalProtect VPN before you attempt to access the e-resources. Please see the software for remote working page.
