Access to electronic resources (eResources)
Access restrictions to individual resources are determined by the service providers' licence agreements.
Use of our electronic services is controlled by the authentication required by the specific service provider.
Authentication is either by DS username/password or by University IP address.
The majority of our services require you to authenticate using your University of Strathclyde DS username/password. This is the username/password you get when you register or start working with the University.
Contact us if you have any questions about your DS account.
University IP address
Some of our services are available on campus machines using the University's IP address. These services are also available remotely using your DS username and password.
Visiting scholars and other temporary staff should contact us for details on how to apply for a DS account.
