If you are a current student (at our Sunderland Campus, London Campus, at one of our partner colleges, or studying independently), you should be able to access all the e-books we have purchased.
The best place to begin your search for e-books is our library homepage:
You can use the Search for books and more search box and select Books and eBooks. If an electronic version of a title is available, a link to read online will be shown. Click on this link and log in using your University user ID and password and you will have access to the e-book:
You will usually have the option of reading the e-book online or downloading a copy of the e-book for a specified period of time. We recommend reading e-books online as this allows you to use more features such as adding notes, searching within the book, printing, and copying. As you don't 'loan' the e-book, it does not appear on your library account so you don't have to 'renew' it if you want to view the book for longer.
Please note: Due to copyright licensing, printing and copying from e-books is limited (you can't print off the whole book!).
