In the Library context, 'resources' means journals, books or databases. Electronic resources are resources that are available online: there is no difference in the academic suitability of an electronic resource compared to a print resource. The benefit of using electronic resources is that they are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Your first port of call for finding out which the best resources are for your subject is to visit the Subject Guide for your course. For further help, contact your Subject Librarian whose contact details you will find on the relevant Subject Guide.
Click on a resource link and enter your University username and password. A minority of resources require additional steps, the details are under the resource link.
When you login to electronic resources you agree a number of terms and conditions which are available in full here.
