If this is the first time you have logged in via this method when off-campus you will be asked to complete a Multi-Factor Authentication. For more information see:
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 in written guides - see the links below.
