Off-Campus Access

The UNE login

Make the UNE library homepage the first choice for your research. You must be a current UNE student to access any electronic resources which are paid subscriptions. Access is granted through an institutional login: use your UNE username and password via the library homepage (this prompts you to login when you try to view content). UNE credentials won't be accepted if you attempt to log in from the database website.

Pay for Access? No!

Clients do not need to pay for access to resources that are part of UNE subscriptions. To ensure you have full access to subscribed resources, use the Library homepage as your starting point for research.


Subject Search

Need research help? Submit a Subject Search and a librarian will reply with research advice and resource suggestions.


Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar from the Library homepage provides direct links to UNE's subscription resources. This  is indicated by the following link:


Links from Moodle pages

Moodle pages often link to online readings for direct access to both on and off-campus clients. However, incorrectly formatted links mean off-campus clients may be asked to login or pay to view the full text. As the link works correctly when accessed on-campus, coordinators may be unaware of the problem.

Report any failed Moodle links to your unit coordinator (it is also helpful to inform the Library).

Find it yourself

You can also try to find the full text. Copy the article title or book chapter into Summon search from the Library homepage. This may link you to the full text.



eBooks are included in Library Search. First, refine your search to books.

Full text available or Online access indicates that the item is an eBook. Click on View it to access.

Most eBooks can be downloaded to your computer (as well as viewed online). However, some publishers limit the number of copies that may be borrowed simultaneously - you may see a message to try again later. 

If the link does not appear to work, please inform the Library so that we can resolve the issue.

Link not working?

It is important that clients have full access to all UNE's resources. If you are unable to access a resource and the information on this page does not solve the issue, please inform the Library. In most cases we can resolve the issue quickly and may save problems in the future. If there is an error in our systems or those of our vendors, we want to have it fixed as soon as possible so that all clients have appropriate access.
