As part of a new pilot scheme provided by Learning On Screen, BoB, the archive of TV and Radio broadcasts, will be accessible to UK-based Kent staff and students temporarily residing in EU countries during the pandemic (alongside our UK access which remains unaffected). BoB remains unavailable to our students permanently studying at the European Centres in Paris and Brussels.

The EU pilot will take place between June 2021 and 31 December 2021.

Kent students temporarily studying in Europe

Sign into BoB via the Library with your Kent IT Account details. You will have access to BoB resources on playlists created by academic staff at Kent. Please contact your module convenor if you need to access a BoB resource but it is not available on a playlist.
