You should always connect to a database, e-book or e-journal via the University Library website, as you would be able to access these resources using our proxy server. Going directly to an e-resource may not work off campus, as you would need the Library's credentials to log in.

You can access our digital materials through several methods:

  • Search Summon - this will search across all our databases as well as our print materials for information, articles and other resources for your assignments
  • Consult the Subject Guide for your discipline - this contains recommendations of the most useful databases, websites and resources to being your research
  • Browse our eResources page - if you know which databases are most relevant, you can go to them directly and conduct more targeted searches on your topic.
