Electronic Resources @ UCC Library: Accessing Electronic Resources

Information for UCC staff and students in relation to accessing electronic resources to support their teaching, learning and research.

Who can access electronic resources?

Current students and employees of UCC can access UCC Library's electronic resources for educational purposes only.

Access to electronic resources is determined by the legally binding contracts that we, as a University, sign when entering into an agreement with a publisher or provider. 

When will I be prompted to log on?

You will be required to log on when accessing licenced resources off campus or when using UCC Wi-Fi.

This allows the resource to identify you as an authorised UCC user.  Simply enter your UCC IT Account details in the appropriate fields to gain access to the resource.

How do I log on?
