Off-campus access to e-resources

Remember that if you're away from St Andrews, you can still access most Library e-resources using your University Account Username and Password (the same as you use for University e-mail).

You can access via:

  • A-Z Databases page
  • SAULCAT, the Library catalogue
  • the E-Journals pages also link to individual e-journals (which are also listed in SAULCAT)
  • or via SEEKER, the Library’s new search service, which allows you to do a single search across many of the Library's databases
If you’re not sure which off-campus access method to use, check the A-Z Databases page.

Logging in:
  • select the database you want to search
  • use the login link that you'll see on that database (you may have to look carefully for it)
  • it will say something like: UK Federation WAYF / Institutional Login / Login via your Home Institution / Shibboleth login / Alternative login, or similar
  • then enter your University account details to access
Please note:
    • the previous method of off-campus access, using ATHENS, is no longer used
    • you may continue to see ATHENS logins on some e-resources, but these links are no longer relevant to you, and you should ignore them (some Universities continue to use ATHENS)
