Library SmartSearch access from off-campus

**Off-campus access to SmartSearch has now been restored. Apologies for the inconvenience**

We're currently experiencing problems with off-campus access to Library SmartSearch. We're in contact with the suppliers who are trying to rectify this as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, you have several options open to you to carry on with your research:

1.       Use LibGuides to link to databases within your subject area. Either use the subject guide for your area of study, or if you know the name of the database you want to use, click on the link to the A-Z list of databases on the right hand side. 
2.       Use Google Scholar to search for academic journal articles. Select Settings and then Library Links and then search for Aston University – Find it @ Aston to set Google Scholar up with our full-text linker to take you to articles.
3.       Use the Journals A-Z list to link through to specific journals
4.       To search for books (print and electronic), use the classic catalogue
