Off campus access to databases

In this video you can see how you can sign in to the databases provided by Ebsco while you are off campus. In this example, we are using a database called ERIC. You just need to search for CINAHL in the Library Search instead of ERIC.

Click on the video to see it in full screen.

Step 1

To be able to view the full contents of the CINAHL Plus database, you have to locate and access it from the Library's A to Z list of Databases. You can find it under the letter C.

Step 3

In the list that appears, locate and select University of Dundee.

Step 2

Click on the drop-down menu and select "UK higher Education".

Step 4


Then you have to fill in your University of Dundee email (without the dots in the name) and password.

Step 5

After you have signed in, you should be transferred to the CINAHL Plus homepage. There, you should see on the top right corner the University of Dundee crest. That means that you have signed in successfully and you can now access the full content of the database.
