Access and passwords

On site, you will get automatic access to most articles and eBooks.

Off site (and via WiFi at Shrivenham site), you will need your Cranfield login for full text access.
You can either:

  • choose a Database from our A-Z list to search within a single, subject specific resource.

    • The database links will automatically prompt you for your Cranfield login where needed.

  • or go directly to a favourite database and look for ‘Institutional’ or 'OpenAthens' login, Cranfield University.

There are a few resources which require registration, please see the A-Z Database list for details.
