To access the Library's e-resources when you are off campus you will only need your Warwick login which will be automatically authenticated.
Some Athens based services will ask you to set up your Warwick login as an Athens login. You will only need to do this once to gain access to all databases the Library subscribes to.

Ever been confused about which database to start with? Research Pro is a tool for researching topics by cross-searching multiple databases -- including resources selected from the library’s general and subject-specific subscription databases. Typically you type in keywords and you get out a list of links to journal articles.
- Connect direct to Research Pro
- Connect via the 'Find articles by topic' link on Library Catalogue
- Login to My Library and connect via 'My Research Pro' button
A federated search engine such as Research Pro can be a useful starting point for research. We are interested in how useful it is to you! Send Feedback

Project MUSE has two new features that help users more easily locate articles relevant to their research.
The new features are:
- A 'Search this Journal' search box. This search box appears on each journal's home page, on the Table of Contents (TOC) of each issue, and on each article. The 'Search This Journal' feature enables a user to quickly check all issues of the journal in MUSE, with a single search, for all articles in that journal pertaining to a particular subject.
- Summaries (abstracts) for articles. MUSE now provides a link for the summary of each article. The Summary links appear on the TOCs and in search results, next to the article format options of HTML and PDF.

A new title has been added to our Project Muse database.
Archives of Asian Art is an annual journal devoted to the arts of South, Southeast, Central, and East Asia. Each issue presents articles by leading scholars and a selection of outstanding works of Asian art acquired by North American museums during the previous year. The editors attempt to maintain a balanced representation of regions and types of art, as well as a variety of scholarly perspectives.
