Accessing e-resources

At the University of Portsmouth, we use an authentication system which enables you to use your University username and password to access most of the Library’s electronic resources e.g. ebooks and ejournals, either on campus or more especially when working away from the University campus.

Where and when?

Some electronic resources direct you to a University of Portsmouth login screen where you simply enter your University username and password. To access other e-resources, you may need to first click on an Institutional login, Shibboleth, or Academic Sign-in link. You may also need to select that you are from the UK and/or from the University of Portsmouth.
