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? 

ChemSpider, Reaxys, and SciFinder-n are databases that search for literature, structures, reactions and properties.

Compendex, IEEE Xplore and Web of Science provide full-text articles and more.

The UK Physical Sciences Data-science Service (PSDS), previously known as the National Chemical Database Service, provides many databases to search.
