COVID-19: Access to eBooks
Extended access to eBooks already in our collection.
To make it easier for students to access eBooks, some publishers have lifted restrictions on titles published by the University to allow unlimited, simultaneous, access until the end of the semester. Please note that this does not apply to all publishers.
Limited time access to ADDITIONAL eBook and eTextbook titles.
Some publishers have opened up their collections and are offering students free access for a limited time. Details of their offers can be found on the Finding Books & eBooks page of your library Subject Guides. Don’t use the Library Catalogue or OneSearch to look for these additional eBook and eTextbook titles. You will need to browse each collection separately using the links provided.
