Warburg Institute staff, fellows and students can connect to any Warburg electronic resources or Senate House Library resources that are available for offsite access by using the barcodes on your SAS or Warburg library cards.
The best way to access these is via the Warburg Databases and E-resources page, the Senate House Library e-resources page, or by searching for the resource by title on the catalogue. Using a search engine such as Google will not show our subscriptions even if you can find the website - you need to go through the catalogue or databases list.
The URL should look like this: https://0-[url of the resource].catalogue.libraries.london.ac.uk
To proceed from the catalogue, click on the offsite access link to go to the authentication screen. When prompted, enter your name along with your SAS or Warburg Library card barcodes as in the image below.
Warburg Library readers can access JSTOR and Patrologia Latina/Acta Sanctorum using the same instructions with their Warburg Library cards.
Our electronic resources can be discovered in a number of ways
The title of the resource is indexed on the library catalogue in the same way as a book is. Choose 'title' as your search criteria. Anything electronic marked as 'PC access', which means it will be fully available through library catalogue PCs.
Through the Electronic Resources A-Z list, which can be browsed according to publisher, type of resource and subject.
Through Copac. Using 'main search', choose material type: 'Electronic resources' and Institution: 'Warburg Institute' and enter a keyword in the fields above for the resource you are looking for (such as subject: bibliographies publisher: Brepols) Copac denotes electronic resources with a globe symbol. it will also display other libraries where the resource is held.
Athens and Shibboleth are sometimes used to verify and authenticate institutional users to directly log in to e-resources for which libraries and institutions have subscriptions. The system we use does this through the library catalogue instead.
