What are e-resources & how can I find them?

An e-resource is an electronic information resource that you can access through the Library website, on or off campus. You can get the information you want, when you need it, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

E-resources include electronic journals, electronic books and online databases. There are many thousands of articles and books available - and the numbers keep growing as new resources are added to our collections. Using our e-resources will guarantee that you are using quality information for your assignments. You can find out more about e-Books here.

This troubleshooting guide has been created by the library's Content Delivery Team to provide guidance for library users when they face problems connecting to online content.
