Just to remind you that it is possible to access OXAM and legal databases when you are off campus using Oxlip+.   When you use Oxlip+ off campus you need to “log in”.

Here are some instructions:

1.  Go to

2. Log in to Oxlip+ (top right corner):

3. You will be prompted to enter you Oxford Single Sign on username and password (this is the same as your Oxford webmail username and password). Once you have entered these successfully click “continue to” (this is the only option!).

4. You will now be taken back to Oxlip+. Enter the name of the database you wish to use (or OXAM) in the search box and click “Go”.   You will then see a link to the database – follow the link to be connected.
