Welcome to Durham University's Common Awards website

Staff access to resources

Staff requesting access to the University's electronic library resources should contact the Common Awards team for a registration form and regulations.

Upon receipt of a registration form, the Common Awards team will check the status and eligibility of the member of staff for this service, and begin processing the form working in conjunction with the University's CIS team. A username and password will be emailed to the staff member once the account is created.

Accounts are created with an expiry date in August. An automated email is sent out near this time to all accounts due to expire to advise the account holder to complete a renewal form; this email is sent to the account holder's Durham University email address. Should the account expire, you will need to re-register for a new account.

We are unable to provide a timescale for issuing the usernames and passwords, as this is dependent on factors beyond our control with the CIS team.
