Online information about University Library and Collection's electronic resources.

Welcome to our Electronic Resources Guide

Electronic resources (or eresources) are materials provided in a digital format and accessed via a computer network. At Durham University, we provide access to a wide range of electronic resources to support the learning, teaching and research activities of our staff and students. They include:  

  • Ebooks
  • Ejournals 
  • Etheses
  • Databases
  • Primary source archives
  • Reference materials
  • Video, image and sound resources

These pages provide a brief introduction to accessing our eresources, guidance on the use of ebooks and information on troubleshooting some common e-resource problems. Any known eresource issues will be documented and there are details on how to get in touch should you need further assistance.
