Take the SSL on Holiday: Ways to access library materials remotely

Green fir branches from a Christmas tree laid on a flat wooden surface with pine cones, red heart and gold star decorations and a sprinkling of snow. Underneath are the words Take the SSL on Holiday.

Our books (both normal and short loan) are currently being issued over the vacation, all will be due back on Friday 29 January (2nd week of Hilary Term).

If you need to access library resources while you are away from Oxford, follow our tips below:

Access e-books, e-journals and databases remotely by logging in to SOLO with your Single Sign On (SSO) Take a look at the Bodleian Libraries LibGuides for further information.

SSLeReadings provides scans of selected articles & book chapters on undergraduate reading lists we support, that are not available in e-books or e-journals.

Most postgraduate reading lists are available on ORLO and scans, online article and ebooks can be accessed there.
