These are a good starting point for information relevant to your subject area. These blogs are maintained by our subject teams and specifically aimed at staff and students in the relevant department/subject area.
These pages highlight resources relevant to maths and physics.

Passwords & Access
Most of our electronic resources work by IP address recognition – so if you are on campus you will usually get seamless access. However, if you are off-campus you may either need to connect to your desktop via the Remote Desktop Gateway, set up the Virtual Private Network (VPN) or log in using the UK Federation. See the How to access e-resources page of the library website for further details.
