Finding e-books on the Library catalogue

The Library's e-books can be accessed using the Library Catalogue. When you find an e-book click on the full-text link in the book record to access the text.

Can't access the e-book?

Some e-books are single-user only, which means that only one person can view at any one time.

If you can't get access to the book, try again later. If you are still having problems - let us know.

E-book Collections

The majority of our e-books can be accessed via the Library Catalogue, but they can also be accessed via our e-book collections.

There are additional benefits of using the e-book collections.
