How to Access Resources

We offer a wide range of resources that are available to staff and students online. To access Library resources online, we recommend following links in your reading list or searching by title or keyword through the Library website.

Below is some helpful information on how to access our services and resources from wherever you are.

  • Guidance for e-resources
  • Guidance for reading lists
  • How to search the Library for resources
  • Requesting a resource
  • Guidance for Interlibrary Loans: We will continue to make interlending requests for copies of articles and chapters which can be supplied digitally by other libraries, but we have now stopped making requests for physical copies of books and photocopies of articles/chapters. This is due to the limited services which are available from partner libraries across the UK and beyond. Due dates for interlibrary loan items have not changed, and can be found on the card within the item or from your online Library account. If you are unable to return your item due to self-isolation, or need to renew your book, please contact us at libline@essex.ac.uk
