Access to Staffordshire University E-databases requires login credentials which will be emailed to your official student / staff email by Staffordshire University’s IT department. Only full-time academic staff and students in dual degree / degree programmes with Staffordshire University are entitled to this credential.

Please ensure you have checked your email (including your Junk/Spam folder) for the login credentials. If you have not received or have any login related issues, please contact the Library Helpdesk for assistance.

Once you have your login credentials ready, you may follow the login steps below to access SU’s selected e-databases.

IMPORTANT: Please log out from your APU’s Office 365 account (i.e.: from your browser before accessing SU’s e-databases. This is because your browser will by default pick APU’s student email ID (if you are already logged on) as the username for SU, and trigger an error message to notify that you don’t have an access.

Click on the full text link to access the e-resource of your choice. It will direct to you to the login page where you will have to enter the SU login credentials.


3. Each eResource/ebook/ejournal is different but you may see a login screen which looks a bit like this. Key in your username and click “Next” to enter your password (password is your date of birth in 6 digit format – ddmmyy).
