Change to authentication for Library resources

From Monday, 30th June, we will be changing the authentication for accessing the Library’s electronic resources by on-campus users.

Currently, only off-campus users have to authenticate.

From 30 June, all access to electronic resources, whether on- or off-campus, will require an individual login, using your University ID and password (or barcode/lastname).

This is necessary to give the Library sufficient control over access to licensed resources and also followup in the misuse of those resources which has, in the past, lead to access being blocked for all users.

Note that the login is required only once per browser session. You will not be asked to log in again until you quit your browser (or until your session times out — currently 60 minutes).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
