Copy of Discovering e-resources: Can I access e-resources?

Who can access e-resources?

University members

Those attached to a college, department, or institution of the University of Oxford, as a member of staff, a student, or an academic visitor, with a blue University Card

University members may access e-resources both on campus and off campus. To access e-resources off campus, University members must sign into SOLO using their Single Sign On (SSO).

Bodleian Readers

Those with gold, silver, mauve, green or red Bodleian reader cards

Those with a Bodleian reader card may access e-resources when on campus using a computer in a Bodleian Libraries reading room or their personal device. If using a personal device you will need to be connected to the Bodleian Libraries wireless internet network and to SOLO. You will not be able to access e-resources remotely when off campus.

Please find further information on who may use e-resource on the Bodleian Libraries website.


Alumni of the University of Oxford can access a number of electronic resources on or off campus through the OBA Network; further information is on the Bodleian Libraries website.
