Leeds University Library

Problems accessing an article

Does the Library have a subscription?

Check the details in Search@Library. You can search using the individual article title. To see our full holdings for the journal, use the advanced search to look up the publication title (as the article may only be available from the Library in print, not online). 

Are you logging in correctly?

In most cases you will just need to use your username and password to access electronic resources (e-resources). To ensure you are correctly logged in, and recognised as a member of the University of Leeds when working off campus, we recommend accessing the journal or article you need via Search@Library.

Are you a member of the University of Leeds?

Only registered members of the University of Leeds are eligible to access the majority of online journals and databases the Library subscribes to. These restrictions are set out by the publishers, in the terms of the individual licence agreements, and we must comply with them.

If you are not a member of the University, check whether you have access through your own institution. Members of the public may be able to make requests for articles via their local public library.
