Easier access to the Electronic Library!

Access to the many electronic journals, databases and other electronic resources available from the Library has just become much easier!

Now all you need is your University network username and password to access almost all the resources available regardless of where you are.

Until recently special usernames and passwords were needed to access some resources and many of them could not be accessed off-campus.

All you need to do is ...

  • From the Library homepage, choose Electronic Library
  • Then log-in using your University of Sussex Computing Service (USCS) username and password. (You need to log-in because most of the resources in the Electronic Library are not available to the general public)

In a few cases you also need a so-called 'Athens' username and password (Athens is a system that manages access to electronic resources). Where this is the case, the Electronic Library pages will make it clear and explain how you can get an Athens username and password. If you already have an Athens username and password this will continue to work until its expiry date.

You can also access the Electronic Library from the Library page in Sussex Direct.

Thanks to the Computing Service and the Sussex Direct team who have worked with the Library to make easier access to the Electronic Library a reality.

Further information on the new access arrangements is available.
