      Depending on which category you fit into, there will be a different way for you to prove to us that you are entitled to free access. We have tried to keep this validation as simple as possible, so most people will just need to provide an email address but the process will vary for different categories.

      To find out more about the way we validate each category, you can explore the registration form and see what is required.

      If you do not fit into any of the categories listed above, then you can buy access through e-LfH’s not-for-profit sister company, eIntegrity. This can either be done individually, or institutions can buy multiple licenses.

      Users registered with certain OpenAthens providers can gain access to e-LfH resources. If you already have an account with one of those providers then log on with that provider.  


      Your entered work email address will determine which subsequent options are available to you e.g. if your email address has a NHS email extension, you will be approved for access and will be required to complete additional information relating to your job role and work place location.


      IMPORTANT NOTE: If you enter a personal email address when registering, this will reduce the number of registration options available to you and display only the options that require additional validation. If your work role option is then not visible, check the email address you are using to register with and restart the registration process if required using your work email address.

  • Problems with registration

  • Why have I not received my username and password yet?
    • Please ensure you have checked the e-mail account you used to register with us, as your account details will have been sent to that e-mail address. For most users, this will be your work email address.

      Sometimes our registration emails can be wrongly identified as junk mail so please check your junk mail or spam folder as well.

      If you have checked your e-mail account and still haven’t received your username and password, you should contact us by using the Support form.

  • I think I already have an account, how do I find out my username and password ?
    • If you think you have an account, then you should try to log in, learn more about logging in.

      If you think you have an account, but cannot remember your username, learn more about usernames.

      If you have forgotten your password but do know your username, learn more about resetting passwords.

      If you are unsure about whether or not you have an account, you should try registering. If you already have an account the registration process will recognise your details and advise you further. Otherwise, you will be able to complete the registration process.
