Why am I getting fewer search results when working off-campus?

You will get fewer search results when working off-campus if you do not sign in to DiscoverEd.

If working off-campus it is recommended that you sign in to DiscoverEd before doing any searches. This will ensure that you get access to the full set of resources available via DiscoverEd.

Some of the resources in DiscoverEd are restricted by licence e.g. Web of Science (WoS), so you will only see results from these resources if you are working on-campus or if you are signed into DiscoverEd.

This only applies to those signing in as “University Login Users”. For those library borrowers who sign in as "Other Users” your access will still be limited as the licences restrict access to University members only
