Off-campus access to electronic resources

Access to Keele's eresources is usually through your Keele username and password.

Our eresources off-campus guide‌ will help you through the process, as will our off-campus access video.

A few resources work slightly differently, so we've produced a series of short videos to assist with off-campus logins to our resources. These can be found on the Keele Campus Library YouTube channel here.

Look out for a link called 'Institutional login' or 'Shibboleth login', select the 'UK Federation/UK Higher Education' and then 'Keele University'.  You will then be able to use your Keele IT Account username and password; the same login you use to access PCs on the campus network.

Below is a screen-shot of the log-in screen to look for:

Access is available for all registered Keele students and staff.

If you are having difficulties accessing resources please contact the Library Info Point via email at or telephone 01782 734159 for further assistance.
