Logging in through the library search


Our Library Search provider (EBSCO) have recently changed the way you log in to view search results and e-resources. We are currently discussing ways to improve this process with them.

In the meantime, please see attached screenshots below for guidance.


1 - After searching for keywords in the library search, click on the yellow 'Welcome guest' banner at the top of the search results page

2 - You will see a blue EBSCO page with a search bar. Type in 'University of Essex' and hit enter. Click on the search result below the box.

3 - You will then see a log-in box, under this is a link to the 'Institutional log in'. Click on this.

4 - You will then see the usual University log in page (with the Lego man). Log in with your usual Essex email address and password.
