If you are a full current member of the University of Oxford, you can access most library electronic resources off-campus.
Go to SOLO and click on Oxford Single Sign On (top right). For most of our e-books and e-journals this is all you need.
If you do not know your SSO details please visit the SSO section of the IT Services website .
Only necessary for a few library resources. With VPN you can access the University network as if you were on campus. Register with IT Services.
If an electronic version is not available, we may have it in print copy. Print copies of journals and conference proceedings are held in the closed stack at our Book Storage Facility in Swindon. They can be located and requested using SOLO.
Pre-prints and author manuscripts
Many academic institutions now collect peer-reviewed author manuscripts and pre-prints from their academics into digital repositories. This can provide easy open access to high quality scientific publications. You can find repositories and search their contents using the OpenDOAR directory.

AIP Conference Proceedings (physics)
