The library's eBooks are designed to be read on Windows PCs, Mac computers, iOS devices and Android devices. To read online you will usually only require an up-to-date web browser. 

To download an eBook, platforms have different computer software requirements. Specific software may be required. In most cases you will require a PDF reader on either a computer or mobile device. Some eBooks only work with specific software, due to publisher restrictions. More details can be found in the help pages for the relevant eBook platform (see below). 

University computers should have the relevant software required for accessing the library's eBooks. On your own device you may need to install a specific PDF reader or other software, for example Adobe Digital Editions or Bluefire Reader.

eBook platforms that provide eBooks for the library:

Proquest eBook Central (EBC)

Askews and Holts VLE Books


EBSCO eBooks

Taylor & Francis eBooks
