How can I access the Library’s online resources?
You need to log in before you can begin your search.
You'll know you've logged in successfully as the word 'success' will appear at the end of the URL, and a popup message will display to tell you that you have successfully signed in to OpenAthens. You can then select access the list of databases.
Alternatively, once you've logged in, you can open Library Search (library catalogue) in a new tab and search directly there. If a resource is available to you, you will be able to access it directly from there.
Why can I access some online resources but not others?
Some online resources are not available to alumni members due to licensing agreements which restrict access to current Monash staff and students. This applies to many eBooks.
I signed in to Library Search why can't I access Library resources?
Signing in to Library Search will only give you access to your Library Search account, it won't give you access to the full text of Library online resources.
You need to first log in via our alumni page, then you can return to Search and access items available to you.
