Electronic resources available to visitors

The license agreements for the majority of our electronic resources mean that they can only be accessed by Nottingham Trent University staff, students and researchers. There are some, however, that can be accessed by visitors to Nottingham Trent University campus libraries. 


Before visiting please check:

  • the opening hours of the library you wish to visit, please note, visitor access is only available during full service hours
