Computer Science: E-books

Search SOLO

Remote Access

To access Oxford's subscription resources off campus:

Use your Single Sign On. Go to SOLO and click on Oxford Single Sign On (top right). For most of our e-books and e-journals this is all you need.

What about VPN (Virtual Private Network)? Only necessary for a few library resources. With VPN you can access the University network as if you were on campus. Register with OUCS.

For further information see the Bodleian Libraries remote access guide.

Computer Science e-books and tables

In addition to physical books, the library also has a number of e-books which can be accessed by University of Oxford members on or off campus. E-books can be found using SOLO or by searching various e-book platforms directly. There are also a range of on-line services which can be used to access out of copyright or public domain books.

Please note that e-legal deposit items are subject to restrictions, more information in the Electronic legal deposit box below.

Electronic legal Deposit

You may find items on SOLO with an orange dot and an 'online access is restricted' notice. The Bodleian receives a copy of every item published in the UK and the Republic of Ireland through "legal deposit" legislation  Items which are received electronically are subject to restrictions:

  • They may only be used on Bodleian Libraries' workstations (not your own computer)
  • You may not save these items or copy and paste from them
  • Only one person at a time can view each item

Many of these items are also available as regular e-journals or e-books which face far fewer restrictions.  To avoid restricted items look out for the green Online access label.
