The University of Bolton Library

Accessing Online Library Resources

Accessing Online Library Resources

Online library resources are available to support your studies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The best place to find the key online library resources for your subject is the Subject Guide for your course. 

Logging In

Click on a resource link and enter your University of Bolton username and password.

Your username is a combination of letters and numbers. eg. prc1gcc.

If you are studying a UoB course with one of our Off-Campus Partners your username may end in "ocd". eg. abc1ocd

It is not your seven digit student number or your Library PIN.

If you have forgotten your username or password you can look up or reset them. 

Username lookup

Reset your password

If you are having problems logging in, please see our Troubleshooting guide

The standard University of Bolton login screen, featuring a box to enter your username and your password

A small minority of resources require a different username and password - see below for details.

When you login to online library resources you agree to a number of terms and conditions.

You may choose to use Discover@Bolton, an individual database or an specific journal. Visit your Subject Guide or our Resource Guides for more information. 

Resources with a unique username and password

A few resources have a unique username and password that is set by the supplier, rather then using the usual University of Bolton online resources logon. If this is the case, information will be given by the resource link.

All of the non-standard resources are listed on the Moodle page below, along with the username and password required. Click the Unique Usernames & Passwords link and log in to Moodle with your usual University username and password. Then click Enrol to access the information.
