E-books

We have a growing collection of e-books that can be accessed 24/7.  They are often online versions of print books we have in stock, however we also have a number of subject-specific and reference collections.

Finding e-books

Individual titles can be found quickly and easily from Summon, our one-stop-shop library search tool.  Either search by the title of the book you need, or if you're doing a keyword search, enter the words that best describe the subject you're looking for, eg sport psychology.

Your search might return a high number of results.  To narrow this down to e-books, look at the 'Refine your search' options in the left hand menu and select:

  • under Content Type, select 'Book/eBook', and
  • under Refine your search, select 'Items with full text online'

Now, to open the book you need, follow the 'Full Text Online' link.

Alternatively, to browse our subject-specific collections, follow the 'E-book collections' link to the left.

Logging In

Remember, to access e-resources of any kind, you will need to login to the e-Library.  This link is found on the Library homepage; simply enter your network username and password. 

Getting Help

If you need help finding or using e-books or any other type of information, contact your Subject Liaison Librarian.  Alternatively, ask us a question online at Got a Question.
