New extended access to major research databases available for Library registered users.

 

JSTOR has recently launched an experimental program to offer free, read-online access to individual scholars and researchers who register (for free) with a MYJSTOR account.

The 'Read and Register' initative aims to extend access to JSTOR beyond the walls of a subscribing institution.

 

At present approximately 75 journals from more than 40 publishers are part of this program. JSTOR plan to add additional titles at a later date. A full list of titles can be found here.

 

Once registered users can read and save up to three items or articles at one time. The item must stay on your shelf for a minimum of 14 days but then it can be removed and replaced with a new item. For full information on how to access this contet go to JSTOR.

BioOne offers full text access to a wide range of high impact bioscience research journals, check the full list of journals here.

 

BioOne's mobile site allows registered library users to access BioOne from their supported device for up to 28 days free of charge.

 

Come into the library and access BioOne via the library's subscription, here you can 'pair your device' to BioOne. This is easy to do, full instructions can be found here, or ask a member of staff. After 28 days access will expire and you will need to come back to the library to renew.

 

To become a registered library user please make an appointment to come and visit us. Contact information, details on what you need to bring on your first visit, opening times and other information can all be found here.
