Unless otherwise stated, access to eresources off campus is normally provided only to current staff and students of the University.

When you are off-campus it is recommended that you use the following interfaces provided by the Library to access information: iDIscover, Databases A-Zejournals A-Z, ebooks collections page. The first link you use from these sources will generate a Raven login screen for you to complete and then take you through to the resource.

Further information on off-campus access can be found here

If you have trouble accessing an ebook or an article when you're not on the Cambridge network, test your Raven access and contact the UIS Service Desk if it isn't working.

If you see an error message that you are not authorised to use electronic material then contact the Raven helpdesk on

If your Raven access works but the resource doesn't, contact the eresources team and let them know what you're trying to access and what the problem is. Please send as many details of the problem as possible, screen shots of any error messages you see are always useful.
