Medicine: resources for Postgraduates: Databases and Off-Campus Access

Key Databases for Medicine

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 SAULCAT 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.

If you are going to be using a lot of library and University resources off campus then it might be an idea to set up a VPN connection. More instructions are on this page.

Inter Library Loans

Any material that is not available online through the University we can get hold of for you through our InterLibrary Loans services. For further information see our ILL page, Journals can be sent to you by email, books will have to be picked up from the Main Library.
