Access to electronic resources

Due to licensing restrictions, we are currently only able to provide remote access to electronic resources to Brunel students and staff. However, visitors to the library who possess a valid pass will be able to access certain electronic resources, via the library catalogue kiosks on each floor, provided the licences permit "walk in" or guest access. If a licence does not permit guest access then visitors will see a message stating that access is denied.

To avoid disappointment, you should check with the e-Library team to see if a licensed electronic resource would permit guest access or not before you apply for a visitor's pass (please give at least one working day's notice). The following resources do not permit guest access: Bloomberg, Refinitiv Workspace, Fitch Connect, FT.com, LexisNexis products, Mintel products, O'Reilly Safari, Passport, SAE Journals and Technical Papers, Westlaw.

Please sign on to the Alumni Portal for access, see: /alumni/Brunel-Alumni/Alumni-benefits. Items on JSTOR which are not included on the subscription may be purchased via .
