Searching for e-books

You can start at Library Search. Sign in, then type your search terms into the box, and then click the magnifying glass. You will then be taken to a results page for the search terms used, for all types of material. To narrow your results to e-books only, use the filters on the left and select 'Books' under Resource Type and select 'Available online' under Availability, then click the apply filters button:


E-books in our collections are usually supplied by either ProQuest Ebook Central or VLeBooks.


• 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.

• Due to copyright licensing, printing and copying from e-books are limited (you can't print off the whole book!).

• Different e-book licenses mean that sometimes only a certain number of people can read the e-book at the same time. For these books, you'll have the option to join a queue rather than read the e-book immediately. You'll then have to wait in the queue until it is your turn to read the e-book.

• If you want to download an e-book, you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your device.
