An ebook to put it simply is a book that is available to be read in a digital format. Unfortunately, not every print book the library has in stock is available as an ebook. It is possible therefore that you may need to look for alternative titles in ebook form and use these instead. Please use MultiSearch and the other ebook resources listed on this page to identify alternative options.
Ebooks are also subject to different levels of access and individual licenses determine what can be accessed including how many people can access an item at the same time and what you can do with the ebook content.
The library has access to a number of e-books that cover a wide range of topics. Where we can, we have make ebooks searchable via MultiSearch (see below) However this is not always possible and so you may need to search through individual ebook collections which we have listed below. Please also check the resources temporarily made available in the box below.
If you can't find what you are looking for from these links, check out the ebook collections that have been made available due to Covid-19 below. Available for a limited time.
As mentioned there are often limitation on the number of concurrent readers who can access an e book. Once the limit is reached others will be turned away until a slot becomes free. It is advisable to check the number of concurrent users and to advise students of this. If you have any questions about concurrent access please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
