Accessing electronic resources on a mobile device

Welcome to the Library Services guide to accessing books, journals and databases on a mobile device.  We have tried to gather together what we know about our most used resources.  

See the following pages for an alphabetical list.

This kind of information can quickly go out of date so we are keen for you to share any updates, hints and tips for accessing the resources you find useful while studying at King's.

King's Mobile is an app aimed at current students but is also useful for members of staff. It is available via the Android, Apple or Blackberry app stores. 

A web version can also be accessed via a web browser on a computer, laptop or other device e.g. Windows phone.

It provides essential university information and services in a mobile-friendly format. King’s Mobile is updated regularly with news, events, up-to-date contact details and the latest services available to students.

The following Library Services are offered via the app:

  • Search for and renew/reserve your library books
  • Keep track of what you have loaned and what your outstanding fines are

There is also information about Library Services in the Key Information section of the app.
