Electronic Resources for Walk-in Users
A number of academic institutions are now offering walk-in access to electronic resources. It may be possible to access electronic resources from some East Midlands academic libraries and the relevant web pages should be checked for up-to-date information about access policies.
Information about the University of Nottingham's Walk-In User service which gives members of the public access to a wide range of electronic resources at libraries across the University can be found here:

HE Access to e-resources in Visited Institutions (HAERVI)
The HAERVI project was promoted by SCONUL and UCISA to improve the service offered by HE institutions to visiting students and researchers from other HEIs who wish to access licensed e-resources.
The Project has produced the Best Practice Guide to HE Access to e-resources in Visited Institutions
JISC has produced a list of other online resources and created an easy to understand chart to demonstrate what access is and is not allowed.
