Add Library Access

Laptop work


Library Access is a browser extension, or add-on, available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari.

Why is Library Access useful?

Library Access makes it simpler to access articles, journals and databases, particularly when you are studying off campus. It detects when you are on a website the Library provides content on, and prompts you to log in.

If you visit a site which the Library doesn’t provide access to, Library Access may suggest an alternative route, including Open Access content.

It also automatically adds ‘Findit@Salford’ links to results in Google Scholar.
