Connecting from off-campus

Accessing library eBooks, eJournals, and other electronic materials from off-campus is as easy as accessing them on-campus, if you follow this simple rule...

Start your search on the Library homepage

Everything found through the library website has been configured to make access on and off-campus as easy as possible.

Everything you find in the library search, and all our databases, can be accessed anywhere using just your university user ID / email address and password.

As you view electronic articles and eBooks you may occasionally see a University of Hull sign-on screen and be asked to log in. That's all you'll need to do.

Even if the website displaying the journal article or eBook has a 'login' link, you should find that you've automatically been logged in already and are able to download the full text of the article or eBook.

How the log in screen looks

You should see the usual University of Hull sign-on screen when logging in.

The Library uses the university's Single Sign-On system, so you may not see the login screen at all if you have already logged in to another university system.



Is it really that easy?

Yes, almost. There's a tiny number of databases and e-journals that need a different username and password, or have to be located in a particular IT lab. You will see a note if you are trying to connect to one of them.

Something not working?

The Library provides access to millions of electronic journal articles and eBooks so it's inevitable things will go wrong from time to time. If something isn't working please contact the Library.
