E-resources are available via OxLIP+, the gateway providing access to the University’s extensive collection of databases, electronic reference works, e-journals and ebook packages. They can be searched for by title or found grouped by subject.

E-resources can also be searched for via SOLO, Oxford libraries' search and discovery tool. University members may access databases outside Oxford by using their single sign on.

IMPORTANT! Remember to log out from each single-sign-on service you have used when you are done and also logout from the single-sign-on system itself.

The library supports Bodleian-Libraries, OWL, and Eduroam wifi networks.


Members of the University have access to ebooks via SOLO. Search for them as you would for a print book, and click 'View Online' to go to the online version. A guide to using Oxford's ebooks is available here.


E-journals can be searched using Oxford University e-Journals, OxLIP+, or via SOLO as you would a print version. Make sure to check the dates contained in each subscription to find the article you need. A guide to using finding e-Journals is available here.
