What are eResources?

  eResources are electronic information resources which can be accessed online and searched by topic, so you can quickly and easily find relevant information. 

eResources provide access to scholarly journal articles, company and industry information, statistics, market research, newspapers and more. 

eResources are purchased by the Library to support you in your studies and allow 24/7 access to the latest high-quality information.
