Additional online information resources for your subject

How to find and access our online resources to support your studies

Library Search gives you access to all the e-books and journal articles that we have access to. However, we also have many more resources that go beyond Library Search. These include databases, where you can search the journal literature more widely available, and subject-specific primary sources, such as video/film resources, mapping databases, and image/anatomy databases.

Please note that to access the following you will first need to log into StudyNet with your Herts username and password.   

  • The Subject Toolkits on the Online Library page (scroll down to the bottom) in Studynet give you access to subject-specific resources. They are arranged by general subject. Check the resources on your subject toolkit to see if there is anything specific you need to know about access to those resources. For example, British Standards requires FileOpen plugin to download reports.

  • Find and use images, video, and audio resources, including a wide range of photo libraries, film archives, movie clips, and sound archives.

  • Access general reference materials, including maps, statistical data, newspapers, databases, and official information sources.

Don't forget to access your module reading list via your Canvas module for all your essential, recommended, and background reading for your course. 
We’re digitising as many essential chapters and articles as possible as well as increasing ebook versions of the most popular textbooks.
