Are you a new student? Welcome to the University of St Andrews!

Check out our New Student Guide for top tips to get you started using the Library. 

Off-campus access

Nearly all of the Library's subscription databases and journals are accessible off-campus using the normal University login and password. More information can be found in this guide. Please note that the University VPN system no longer works for off-campus access to journals and Library databases. 

If there are problems logging in to a journal check the coverage dates on SAULCAT to ensure that you are trying to access subscribed content. If there isn't an obvious way of signing into a resource, again try SAULCAT as it may give an alternative URL to ensure the login prompt appears,
