Access to Keele University eResources Off-campus

For those of you who might be away from campus during the holiday period, here is a reminder of how to access our eresources:

To check or renew your books

Most books should have a return date for after the Xmas holidays. If you do need to renew your loans or you want to check your account then you can do so online via the catalogue. You will need to enter your Keele computer username and password.

To read an ebook

We have many online ebooks including some popular reading-list texts. Just search the catalogue for the title you are looking for and click the appropriate login link.
You can get more help on using ebooks from our Using eBooks etutorial.

To access our databases to search for articles

Use the links to the databases on your subject page: medicine, midwifery or nursing. These links take you directly to the correct login screen. You will need to enter your Keele computer username and password.
You can find an example of how to do this in the video below:

To access our ejournals for articles

When you search the Keele A-Z list of journals for a journal title you will be given a link to the publisher’s site for the journal page. The publisher sites are all different but you need to login to be able to access the full-text. Look for a login link to the Shibboleth login or Institutional login, then select Keele University. You will be presented with a login screen where you can enter your Keele computer username and password.
Here is an example of how to login to a journal.
