How to find & use E-Books

Whether you are studying off campus, the library has run out of print copies or you simply prefer reading on a screen, you will find many of your key texts available in e-book format.

When you search the library catalogue, some of the results that appear will be e-books. You can also filter your search so that only e-books are included, by specifying the loan type on the left hand side of the screen.

You will be taken to the ebook homepage, where you will have the option to download individual chapters or read the whole book online. The number of copies available refers to how many people are permitted to view the book at any one time. If it says there are currently no copies available, you will need to try again later.

One of the advantages of using e-books is that you are able to search within the book for a particular word or phrase, meaning you can jump straight to that section without having to look through the entire book.
