Library Off Campus Access: Home

Accessing library resources from home 

To connect to library resources such as databases and journals you will need to use the University’s VPN service called Globalprotect. Advice on how to set your connection up can be found on the iSolutions page How do I set up VPN on my device? 

See our video for a quick introduction to accessing library resources from off campus

You will see that some resources in our A-Z Resources list have this padlock symbol padlock icon beside them. This means that you will need to use an extra username and password to access the resource (even if you are using VPN). 

If there is the padlock  showing next to the resource you need, click on the padlock   and then use your University login to sign in to see the list of extra username and password details. 

Alternatively you can click on the link username and password details that you need for specific library resources to get to information.
