Network Password, OpenAthens, Portal, Blackboard, PIN, email... what's it all about?

Accessing Library and educational resources these days means more than reading print-based books and journals. Much of the information you will use is available in electronic formats. On-campus access to the Internet, University email system and Microsoft Office programs such as WORD, EXCEL etc., is restricted through secure systems available only to properly registered Ulster students and staff.

These pages condense the many queries and problems into a series of straightforward explanations which should hopefully clear things up. Select the information you require from the list below.

For more information see also: Information Services, the Library's Databases page or contact Library Staff directly using the details on the left hand side of the screen.
