What are eResources?

Databases (or eResources) provide access to quality academic resources for your work.    

  • Most provide an abstract summarising what the article is about - use this to see if you want to read the full text. 
  • You will get the full text online for most results. If full text is not available, click on Is it @ Solent? to check the library catalogue for access via a different source. 
  • If it is not available from another source, use the link on the Library Catalogue to request the article as an Inter Library Loan (please see Inter Library Loans for guidance and allowances)

Some resources in the list will provide access to other content such as standards, ebooks, market research and multimedia resources. 

For TV recordings back to 2008, scroll down to BoB National.
