Alternative ways to access resources unavailable via Discover
**13/10/21 there is an intermittent issue with signing into Discover, so before searching we recommend logging into MyBeckett > Library tab > Your library account > Click the 'Access' button > Select ‘Leeds Beckett University Login’ > You should then be signed in and able to search for all resources - thanks**
If you are unable to access an ebook or article via Discover, even though there is a green tick and 'Available' next to the resource, then you should be able to access it instead via the suppliers database.
If an eBook link doesn't provide access then click 'Access Online':
Take note of the eBook supplier, eg 'Askews and Holts VLEbooks' below:
Then search the A-Z Databases for the supplier, the two main suppliers to try are:
- 'Askews and Holts VLEbooks' search for 'VLEbooks' - or follow the link!
- 'ProQuest Ebook Central Provider' search for 'Ebook Central' - or follow the link!
Once in the new platform, search for the book and you should gain access - contact us if not.
If you are unable to access a journal article, even though there is a green tick available, then it is worth cross-checking access via the supplier's database. Click on 'Access Online':
Then find a supplier that offers the necessary date coverage eg 'Wiley Online Library' below:
Once in the new supplier platform, search for the journal, then article and you should gain access - contact us if not.
You may find a resource that simply states 'At Leeds Beckett University' and doesn't allow access - this is a known issue, apologies, but it is worth trying the alternative access routes mentioned above.
