Looking for resources? Use Library search (the new name for SOLAR).

A wide range of e-resources are also available to students and staff that can be accessed directly through the online provider that may not necessarily be on Library Search. For example, you can access certain books and articles by browsing eBooks on Dawsonera, Taylor & FrancisEBL etc. If you are searching for something on Library Search and find a relevant book or article on an e-resource provider site, you can then browse those sites for further books or articles. If you have logged in to Library Search, this will transfer your University of Salford permissions to the site you've visited. On certain websites you may still be prompted to select your institution name and log in with your network (Blackboard) details. For further assistance on this topic see the E-Resources FAQs or the Access e-Resources web page.

If you are unable to access an e-book or journal article whilst logged in to Library Search and/or via the institution log in, it is likely that the Library does not currently have access to it. If you need to read that particular book or journal article, you can request it using the Document Delivery service.
