Chemistry: Databases and Off-Campus Access

Key Databases for Chemistry

Off-campus access

There are two ways of accessing library resources off-campus. The simplest is to use your University login, referred to on websites as your Institutional or Shibboleth login.

It is important to note that just because a website has an institutional login it does not mean that we have access to the journal. You need to search the Library collections or our E-journals database to check that we have a subscription to the journal and that it covers the year or volume that you are looking for. 

See our Remote Access to Online Resources page for more information and detailed help.
