Electronic Resources: How to access electronic resources

College username and password

The majority of our electronic resources can be accessed off campus using your College username and password. This is the same username and password that you would use to access a college pc, your college email, and Moodle. 

Instructions for accessing each electronic resource are available on the A to Z Database List

In general look out for any one of these links (they all mean the same thing but different publishers use different names):

  • Institutional login

  • Remote Users: login via  your home institution/organization

  • Shibboleth login

  • UK Access Management Federation

  • UK Federation

Then browse or search for Bradford College.  You will then be prompted for your College username and password.

  Some of our electronic resources have a different link for access off campus. You must access the resource from the links on the A to Z Database List.   When you have found the electronic resource that you want to access, click on the  icon . You will then be prompted for your College username and password. 

Other passwords

Some electronic resources have their own username and password.  These usernames and passwords can be obtained from the Library Information Desk on the second floor of the David Hockney Building.  As use of these usernames and passwords is restricted to the staff and students of Bradford College, you will be asked to show your Bradford College student or staff ID card as proof of identity.  

Library PIN

From the Library Catalogue you can check your library record, renew books or request books that are out to someone else.  You will need to enter your College ID number and your PIN.  Your PIN is a 4 digit number which is set to your year of birth.
