Using this guide

Qatar University Library subscribes to general, multidisciplinary and subject specific databases. This Research Guide will provide you with tips, tutorials, and guides to help you use them effectively.

Access the tabs above for visual tutorials, guides, and instructons on how to search a specific e-resource and its key features.

How to access E-resources off-campus

Access to many of the resources on the QU library website is restricted to currently registered students, faculty and staff. When accessing a library resource from outside the university students, staff and faculty are prompted to enter their QU email username and password to gain access.

Once you log into any database, you are logged into all of the databases until you close your browser. 



Access databases from QU Library website

Once you enter the QU Library website, click on the E-Resources tab and browse our list of databases using the drop-down menu. You can browse databases by title, subject, or type. For example, if you wish to access Endnote, click on the 'Citation Management Software' option.
