The library catalogue can be used to access e-resources. If you want to search the content of a title, we recommend that you access the resources using the direct link to the publisher's e-resources platform.
You won't need to log in as your IP address is always checked when accessing a resource. This is why you need a VPN connection to access resources from home. You can find instructions on how to do this on the Computer Centre webpage. Please log in to the university homepage using your personal computing ID prior to use.
