Accessing Electronic Resources

Most Coventry University electronic resources require a username and password for off-campus access. Some also require this on-campus.  Use your normal Coventry University username (eg smithj27) and password to access most electronic resources.

The most reliable way to access databases is via Locate. You will then be taken to the correct link and be prompted to login if necessary.  

If you have any problems accessing any of our electronic resources you can ask us online through our Libchat service on Locate, check our Libanswers FAQ database, email or phone us or contact your Academic Liaison Librarian.
