Not just an A-Z of all the journals we currently subscribe to, but also of our back issues. It is really easy to use. Just type the name of the journal you are looking for, or browse alphabetically.

EOLAS Login Error

When you login to EOLAS you get a code 103 error. This is the wording of the error:

"We are unable to validate your login credentials. Please contact your institution for assistance. Please note, Referring URL authentication may have been prevented by antivirus or privacy control software. [Authentication Error Code 103]"

This is usually a temporary error with the EBSCO servers. You can check the status of the EOLAS product here: The official name for EOLAS is EBSCO Discovery Service. 

Sometimes deleting your cookies helps. Be aware though that it will delete your search history and/or your passwords. You could always switch to another browser that you don't normally use, or try incognito mode


EOLAS is a name we use for a tool called EBSCO Discovery Service.  EOLAS is the Irish word for knowledge. It searches most of our online resources and all our print collection. It includes journal articles, ebooks and more. We have also added some open access resources such as DOAJ, Cochrane Library, ETHOS and Pubmed. 

We have set up EOLAS in such a way that you are only accessing full text resources (available in library collection limiter) that we have in our collection. You can check to see what is included in EOLAS any time from the A-Z database list

Get Help with EOLAS and searching: email and you will be put in touch with your liaison librarian who will arrange a Microsoft Teams call with you where we can share our screen. 



If you can't get in to use EOLAS, please watch the video above first and try the help guides. Then either contact the library helpdesk at or text  the systems librarian Aine Meehan on teams:
