Management, Leadership and Coaching: Help using your library

Accessing library resources

MOL courses are supported by the The Manchester College library service. The Manchester College pays a subscription to publishers which allows students to access academic eBooks, journal articles and databases. 

To take advantage of this and access these resources you will need to log in.

All of the resources recommended in this guide are available to MOL students as part of this subscription. If you come across a pay-wall or are struggling to access the resources you need, please contact us for help.

Resetting your password

You can register for the online password reset tool which allows you to manage your own account at any time via:

Registering for this tool will allow you to reset your password and unlock your account without having to contact the library. This tool is particularly useful when the library is closed. 

 If you have trouble resetting your password contact us

If you change your password you must immediately update any of your mobile devices connected to the network, e.g. to use WiFi or to access email. If you don’t do this your device may try to connect to the system automatically and after three times and you will be locked out. If your account is locked, Library staff can unlock it again for you. 

Searching with Discover

The easiest way to find and access library resources is by logging into Discover, the library's search engine.

Discover searches all of the library's journals, eBooks and databases and only shows you results which you have full access to. For help using Discover, please visit our how-to guide.

If you can't find what you need or are having trouble accessing resources, please contact us for help.

Searching for eBooks

The eBooks recommended in this subject guide are just a small sample of the thousands of eBooks you have access to. Use Discover to search the full collection.

On the left hand side of your search results there is a series of filters which you can use to narrow down your results. Checking "Ebook Limiter" will narrow down your results to just eBooks.
