The library is still here for you but some of our services may look a little different at the moment.

For details about all of our resources and services, visit Getting Started With the Library.

For full details about using the library during the national lockdown, please see What does the national lockdown mean for using the Library?

If you recommend a key book, which students must read to understand module content and to which you refer multiple times throughout the module – and the publisher does not make it available as an eBook – contact your Liaison Librarian to see if it can be sourced as an eTextbook.


An eTextbook is a book not normally available digitally.  Negotiations are undertaken with publishers, often through an intermediary, to provide access for a specific cohort on an annual subscription basis.  Making content available in this way is expensive and will be limited to areas/texts of high demand.


Please get in touch with your Liaison Librarian as far in advance as possible before your module starts, because it takes time to negotiate access with eTextbook suppliers such as Kortext and BibliU.


For more information, see “Why can’t I get this as an eBook?”
