The Library

You’ll find more than books at the Library. You’ll find resources such as online journal articles and ebooks available wherever you are and services to help you develop your information skills or your use of multimedia. The library also has a variety of study environments to suit your study needs.

To access Warwick Library e-resources, you can either follow the links from the Library website, Encore (http://encore.lib.warwick.ac.uk), or Library Catalogue (http://webcat.warwick.ac.uk/). These links will usually take you straight to the Warwick Web Sign-on or the Library Login screens where you will need to enter your Warwick username and password. You should then be taken straight to the e-resource you selected with access to Warwick subscribed content. Access will usually be the same whether you are on or off-campus.
