Apps & Mobile Websites from Information Providers

The table below lists online resource providers who currently provide separate mobile interfaces and/or apps.  Many providers now offer responsive websites, so the standard interface should adapt to work on any screen size. 

To ensure that you get access, particularly to full text and off campus, when using a dedicated mobile interface or app, follow the guidelines for setting up applications. Typically you need to create a personal account for the resource using the desktop interface, and then embed your personal account details into the settings of the application.
