The Library provides access to a large amount of content online, and this can be accessed remotely should you need, or want, to work from home.
E-resources include e-journals, exam papers, e-books, and library databases. Many of these services are provided by third-party suppliers, so we rely on their ability to provide access in the event of any staff shortages they experience. We have sought assurances from these suppliers, and expect access to be maintained.
Access also depends on university systems which allow you to log into these services using your EASE username and password. We are putting plans in place to ensure these systems are as dependable as possible in the event of staff absences or technical failures.
The Library also provides an Ereserve service, which is an electronic reserve collection of high demand copyright cleared book chapters and journal articles. We realise that demand for this service may rise in order to provide essential course readings to students who are unable, or unwilling, to visit the physical library sites. We are putting plans in place to cope with additional demand, and where possible will increase staffing for this service. Where necessary, we will reprioritise requests to ensure that we can deal with the largest courses and most important readings.

The easiest way to find e-books in your subject area, or if you have a particular author and title, is to use the new version of the Library Catalogue (‘Aquabrowser’). When you do a search of this system, you have an option to refine your search so that it only displays e-books. If for any reason this does not work, or the system is not available, you can access our various e-book suppliers individually. Please bear in mind that we do not provide access to all the titles that each publisher offers.
