E-booksThe University Library provides access to hundreds of thousands of E-books (digital versions of printed books accessible online).
The majority of our ebooks are indexed individually and can be searched for (by title) using our Library search. If you do not have a specific book in mind then search for the item or topic you are interested in, and use the filters to restrict the search results to:
"Full Text Online" and "Books".
There are a few instances when a book can only be searched for from the platform or provider that hosts it.
