How to Find Resources

Search SOLO, the library catalogue of Oxford University, to find:
- print books and print journals
- e-books and e-journals (including Electronic Legal Deposit journals and books)
- databases
- research publications of members of the University deposited in Oxford Research Archive (ORA)

It is recommended that you make SOLO your primary search tool as it covers all the material listed above and also includes Electronic Legal Deposit material.

Electronic Legal Deposit (eLD) - information about eLD material can be found here.
Please note that due to legal restrictions on usage, eLD material can be accessed only in Bodleian Library Reading Rooms (the nearest one to the Maths Institute is next door in the Philosophy and Theology Reading Room).

Other Search Tools
Find e-Journals - search for e-journals (but does not include Electronic Legal Deposit journals)
OxLip+ - search for databases and digital archives.

Access to Resources
Passwords are not required if you are accessing electronic resources from within Oxford University.
However, for remote access (from outside the "" domain), you are required to log in with your Single Sign-On Username and Password (from the “Log In” box on the SOLO or OxLIP+ home page).
This will give remote access to all databases, electronic reference works, e-book and e-journal packages that are controlled via IP-recognition.
