If you are encountering problems logging on to the above databases, please follow the advice on the crib sheets below:
MyResearch accounts are now available on the ProQuest Government Platform. Please instruct your researchers to move their MyArchive account over to a new MyResearch account. Instructions for moving saved searches and documents from your MyArchive to your MyResearch account can be found here. Dual platform access will be available through September to allow researchers time to make the change. We also encourage you to check out the great enhancements to the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers on the ProQuest Government Platform via our helpful LibGuide and on the HCPP Support Centre Landing Page.

‘E-Books on EBSCO’ and ‘MyiLibrary’ e-books are accessed via the Internet, so can be accessed from Online Library on any internet-enabled device.
Some books are in pdf format, so you will need to download a pdf file reader in order to view them (e.g. Adobe Reader).
E-Books from our collections cannot be read on an Amazon Kindle.
