Using the library
Accessing online resources
To access online resources including ebooks and journals follow the links from Library Catalogue Plus or from the database you are using. If you are on campus these links will take you straight to the selected resource.
Accessing online resources off campus
We recommend that you use the University's Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client to use online resources off-campus. You can download and install the VPN via the links below.
Alternatively once you have found the database platform you want to search look for the login options and search for Loughborough University in the list - this is usually called institutional or shibboleth login. You will then be able to login using your University IT account username and password.
Please note that you no longer need an Athens account to access online resources. If you have any queries about about Athens please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that users of online resources are expected to abide by the University's IT Acceptable Use Policy and adhere to the Copyright, Design and Patents Act 1988.
