We have amended the default search scope in the library catalogue so that it searches for e-books, e-journals, databases, exam papers and a number of digitised Bangor PhD theses (Bangor E-Resources).  This means that the results you obtain through searching via the default search scope will all be available for you to access online.



If you need to search for journal articles, you will need to change the search scope to Articles Search.


We are accelerating our efforts to purchase online resources to support you including checking to see if essential items on reading lists are available electronically.


We have also been given temporary open access to an extensive range of electronic resources from various publishers.  This includes access to the complete collection of over 200,000 EBSCO Academic Books, over 30,000 full text e-books through JSTOR, free access to Springer Nature textbooks and many more.  You will not discover these resources by searching the library catalogue, but you can view a list of the resources and access them here.


Select your chosen publisher's page to view online from the list



And then search for your book or resource within that site.  The example below is from the EBSCO Academic e-book collection to which we have temporary access to over 200,000 e-books.
