These are the most relevant journals for you. Please make sure that we have access to the year that you are looking for, the dates we have a subscription for are listed under each title.

The Library has access to a large number of electronic books. For selected e-books click on the 'E-Books' tab above. For other e-books, use the box below to search. Please note that the results will also include journal titles, books can be identified by the icon to the right of the screen saying e-book.


University login and password will be required to access ebooks. 


Nearly all the resources you will need access to are journals. Accessing journals off campus can be a bit tricky as you will need to log in to the University to get access to the full journal articles.

To look up a journal firstly go into SAULCAT and make sure that you select the Periodicals and Journals tab at the top. Enter the name of the journal (not the article). Select the one that you want making sure that you choose those that are designated: [Electronic Journal]. Click on the link and the full record appears. The information about the years that we subscribe to will be held on the box in the middle of the record, make sure that we have the years that you are looking for. 

In the lefthand column of this page are some of the journals that you are most likely to be using. Clicking on the littleinfo button button next each of the journals will tell you how to access them. 

The general rule is to find a link to login for universities or higher education. Sometimes this will be called the Shibboleth or Institutional login. You will usually be asked for the country you are trying to access, you should select United Kingdom or 'UK Federation' and then scroll down to find the University of St Andrews.

You should then be re-directed to a screen that looks like this: 

Single sign-on screen

Enter your normal university login (the one that starts with your initials) and password. 

More information can be found on our Remote Access page.
