What can I access online - a few FAQs
26 March 2020
What access to resources can I get at the moment?
All our usual online resources - ebooks, journals, databases and more - are available online as normal. If you have any problems accessing them you can:
- Check our guide to off campus access
- Ask us for help by email or by chat
- Use the Report A Problem link in library search
If you're new to library search, our Getting Started guide might help you out
Some of our suppliers are making more ebooks available to us, and allowing more people to access them at once, so you should find a lot of resources are more readily available to you.
Our library search also includes open access materials (generally available and at no charge) which ensures you’re searching as wide a range of eresources as possible.
Can I still recommend a book to be purchased?
Absolutely, and we’ll prioritise the purchase of ebooks. Fill out the form and well see what’s available.
Can I still request inter-library loans?
Yes you can - we're not able to supply print materials, but if they’re available as eversions, we can order these for you. Place your request as normal.
How about digitised material?
If you’re a member of staff interested in getting material digitised for your module, we’ll do our best to help. We can’t currently provide digitised copies from our own collections and the British Library have suspended their digitisation services, so we can only provide digitised copies of book chapters that the British Library already hold electronically. Place your requests as normal and we'll advise what’s possible.
