Accessing e-resources off campus

When you are off-campus you will need to login via the Online Resources Single Sign On page to identify yourself as a member of the University of Reading to gain access to our protected databases, e-books and e-journals. This login page will only appear when you try to access a resource, it is not a portal you login to prior to selecting a resource.

Videos: doing your literature search

This playlist of three videos shows you how to prepare for and perform a literature search. The first video introduces literature searches and their role. The second video covers using the search operators AND and OR to create a search statement, whilst the third one explains the role of wildcards and truncation in constructing a comprehensive search. This information is also available as a written guide to Doing your literature search. We also have a guide to Effective database searching.
