The Book Library provides access to a number of bibliographic databases and other online resources for Courtauld students and staff.


Some resources are accessible on campus only and others are also accessible off campus using Athens username and password. For a full list of resources accessible via Athens, please log on to MyAthens and select the Resources tab.


Please note that IT Services enable you to login to Courtauld computers from home using SSL software. This should enable you to access all our online resources whether you are on or off campus. Please follow the Login from Home - SSL link under IT Services on the Courtauld Intranet for instructions and contact the IT Centre if you have any queries.


If you encounter any problems accessing any of the online resources subscribed to by the Book Library, please email


Please note that Senate House Library holds a number of subscriptions to databases which students and staff of the Courtauld may access. See the Senate House Library membership page for details.
