In line with international trends, the Library subscribes to a number of Electronic Full Text Databases. These databases provide access to a considerable number of academic, peer-reviewed journals via the Internet or from CD-ROMS located on the University's internal network, allowing you to access the information from any computer/laptop/tablet/smartphone on the University network.
We cannot over-emphasize the importance of these information resources to any person engaged in academic endeavour. Whether you are a first year student, or engaged in PhD research, these are the information resources of the future, available for your use today.
Please ask your Information Librarians for assistance in searching and using the databases effectively.
How to access the UFH Library’s subscription databases from off-campus locations.
In terms of its contracts with its suppliers, the UFH Library is required to limit access to subscription databases to staff and student of the University. Your on campus use is validated by your computer’s IP address, a process that does not require any inputs from you. Off-campus access cannot be controlled in this way. Therefore to use the databases from your home, or other off-campus location, you are required to first identify yourself as a registered Library user.
