CISD students at SOAS
Currently, you are entitled to use both the University of London Library (Senate House) and the SOAS Library. Some material for your course is housed in each place, so you will need to access both sites.
To access SOAS Library e-books, e-journals and databases you will be asked to enter username and password:
Username is your student number, six digits, e.g. 123456,
Password is usually your date of birth in a specific format: dd-Mmm-yy
Please change your password if you haven’t already done so!
For basic information on using the Library, please see left hand menu bar.
For more detailed help, please see the Online programme area of Moodle.
Your Subject Librarian is Victoria Bird.
Distance learning students are able to access the physical library, if they are in London.
The inter-library loan (ILL) service can only be made available to DL students who are able to come to the library in person.
N.B. We are aware that some students are having problems accessing materials. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can assess the scope of the issue.
You may also wish to clear your browser cache as an interim measure to regain access to materials.
