If you are being asked to login to a resource or database or you are denied access to full text
This could be because you have gone direct to the resource through a search engine.
Search for the resource or database on QCat Library Catalogue on Library homepage and follow the links to access
If you accessing a resource from a link or search engine check that the URL has the following extension to the front
You need this part of the URL to login
If using QCat Article search off campus you should click on
Hello, Guest. Login for full access
in the yellow banner at the top of the screen and enter your QUB username and password to gain access to full text.
Some resources or databases may have a specific login or the University may not have a subscription to the resource.
Contact your Subject Librarian for further information
