Please note: On iDiscover you might come across books that are 'restricted to designated PCs'. These ebooks are supplied by publishers under Electronic Legal Deposit legislation, and may only be used on designated PCs. We don't have these in the Jerwood, but you can acess them from most departmental libraries. See the list here.

How do I access eresources?

You can access eresources without a login when on campus or off-campus using your Raven username and password.

Lean Library is a really useful tool which automatically detects the articles that you can access through a Cambridge subscription when you're on other websites e.g. Google, Bing, Baidu, PubMed etc.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar can be set up to display an “ejournals@cambridge” link alongside article citations.  This link will indicate that you have access to the article as a member of the University.   By clicking on the link you will be routed to the article.

To set up the display of “ejournals@cambridge” links in Google Scholar:

  • Go to Settings (three horizontal bars icon)
  • Click on Library links
  • Search for Cambridge in the search box.
  • Check the tick box for “University of Cambridge – ejournals@cambridge” and click Save.

The next time you use GS you will see the links to your entitled access as a member of the University.
