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.

E-Book collections such as E-Book Central may allow a normal PDF download per chapter. Other options include using the print feature/ icon shown to print a section or chapter, then select 'PDF' rather than your printer to create a normal PDF file to save, print or copy/paste text citations.

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 students with our partner organisations such as Kaplan/KOL, please raise this with the online librarian in the first instance.

To limit your search to only downloadable/ printable E-Books you can use the ‘Unrestricted’ option shown in the Library for Online Programmes by selecting this you will only see E-Book results which can be downloaded (e.g. as PDF) and printed.

You should ensure you have the following software installed on your computer/device to access downloaded E-Books:

Students with our E-Learning partner (Kaplan/ KOL) will be required to access some E-Books using the Vital Source platform, this platform requires installation of the Vital Source bookshelf software. Campus services are unable to offer detailed advice on Kaplan's Vital Source E-Books or other external sources such as Amazon Store etc. For support using Kaplan's Vital Source E-Book platform please contact student support within the KOL student portal.

Note: This does not apply for students at Kaplan Liverpool which does not have a professional relationship with University of Liverpool. Kaplan Liverpool students have the same rights to library access as visiting members of the public.

For further help using E-Books, please see our E-Books 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 Support area of the Library for Online Programmes. Also see our guides, videos, tutorials and Library Training Module available via the Library for Online Programmes.
