Some E-Books subscribed by the University Library cannot be fully downloaded or printed and must be viewed via the provider’s Web site, you must remain connected to the Internet when viewing/ browsing these kind of E-Books.

To limit your search to only downloadable/ printable e-books you can use the ‘Unrestricted’ options shown in the Library for Online Programmes. For example, the Discover search box includes an 'Unrestricted Items Only' checkbox, by selecting this you will only see E-Book results which can be downloaded (e.g. as PDF) and printed.

You can browse the contents of a restricted E-Book using the navigation tools available, including contents listings and options to move forward or back through pages or chapters.

For general advice on using E-Books for users with individual needs, please see our E-Books guidelines.

The University Library can assist you in obtaining an accessible E-Book format if you have an individual need which prevents you accessing the text please see our accessibility guide.  Note - for Laureate based students, please see our E-Books guidelines for contact details regarding access to accessible E-Book formats.

For further help using E-Books, please see our E-Book Guidelines.

We provide a dedicated E-Learning Librarian to assist you in using Library resources. If you have any problems using the Library or technical problems, please see the Contacts area of the Library for Online Programmes.
