Partner Access to E-Resources

Please note: Associate Colleges are expected to provide sufficient library resources to support students studying at their institution.

Students and staff (staff teaching on ARU franchised courses including library staff) at partner institutions wishing to access ARU Library e-resources. A list of Partner Institutions for which we have negotiated e-resources access with publishers can be found at the bottom of this page.

Due to licensing restrictions, partner staff and students are only able to access the resources within the packages shown below. To access these resources just click on the resource name and enter your ARU login details and password.

You are welcome to use our University Library Search, to see what kind of information resources we hold or provide access to. However, you will only be able to access electronic resources if they are included in the packages listed below and many other resources will not be available to you. Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you access the resources you are entitled to via the following links.

An ARU Username and Password is required to access e-resources. Students enrolled on ARU courses will receive this during the registration process. Staff without an ARU account should contact our University's Academic Office.

If you're having problems with your login or password please contact IT Services.
