A number of our electronic resources can now be accessed on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets either via a mobile-friendly website or a dedicated app.

Mobile-friendly websites have been designed so that they are easier to view on the smaller screen of a smartphone.  You should still be able to access the same content as the original website.

An app is a piece of software that has been designed to run on most smartphones or tablets.  You will need to download the app from the relevant app store for your smartphone or tablet.  The apps available for our electronic resources are free.


Emerald provides access to full text journal articles on a broad range of subjects including management, human resource management, marketing, librarianship, mechanical engineering, electronic and electrical engineering.

Emerald’s mobile-friendly website is specifically designed for use on any mobile device with a web browser.  Content is organised by subject.  You will need to login via UK Federation using your college username and password if you are off campus.
