Accessing Online Resources
Access subscription Online Resources off-campus by logging in through the library webpages. You will find links on
your subject guide, the A-Z of online resources or by searching Discover.
Logging in via the library authenticates you as a student. If you find the same resources via Google or other routes, you may not get full access to them because you have not logged in as a student at The Manchester College.
