To access ebooks, ejournals and other online resources, you must begin by connecting to Southampton Virtual Environment (SVE).
You can connect to SVE from SIM, at home or from anywhere with an Internet connection.
If you need a book, article or other item that is not available either at Southampton or SIM, you can try requesting it by Inter-Library Loan (ILL).
Important: whole publications (e.g. books, journal volumes) will be posted to you free of charge but you will have pay the cost of returning them to Southampton. (Also note that, some libraries will not allow us to post publications overseas.)
Journal articles, book chapters and other extracts are usually provided as PDF files.
You can have up to 5 free ILLs per academic year.
