The Library subscribes to a huge range of scholarly content including journal articles. But sometimes you might struggle to login to access content if you've followed a link from somewhere other than the Library website. 

If you are struggling to login and access the full text of the article please try the following:

  1. Copy the title of the article and paste it into Discover@Bolton (available from the library homepage). You might want to add the article authors to narrow the results down. If the article is available, follow the link from Discover@Bolton and you should arrive at the correct University of Bolton login page that looks like this: 


  1. Make a note of the publication details of the article (title, author, year, name of the journal, volume and issue). Look up the name of the journal on our Ejournals Portal. This will tell you if we have access to the journal, and if so, which issues we have access to. It will also provide a link to access the journal and browse to the issue you want. If we do not have the volume and issue in question, you may be able to request it by Inter Library Loan

If you are a regular user of Google Scholar, we recommend setting up Library Links. This will make logging into articles with your University of Bolton username and password much easier. For further assistance accessing online library resources, see our detailed guide
