Remote Access

If you have problems accessing resources when you are away from the University, we can help!

Check our Remote Access guide, we have video demos and screenshot examples of how to access lots of resources.

However, we may not have subscribed to every journal that a database lists. If you cannot access an article after you have logged in with your University username and password, check SAULCAT the Library catalogue for the journal title to see if we have access and what years this access covers.

Get in touch, chat, email, call (+44 1334 462331/2) or Tweet and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
