E-books are 200!

We now have over 200 e-books in our collection. With one or two exceptions, all of these titles are also held in print format in the Library. This way, if the 'real' book is out on loan or you can't make it to the Library on time you know you can access the content in an online format. So no excuses!

Our e-books are viewed through your web-browser and can be found on our Catalogue in the same way you search for print items. To see a list of all titles available in this format just click on the 'SPD E-books' icon on the Catalogue home page. Staff can also put links directly to e-books within their Moodle topics.

If you haven't accessed on of our e-books before the online tutorials page on our website has a couple of videos to get you started, like the one below. Or if you'd like a run-through in person or have any questions such as how to link to them via Moodle, just contact Síol, our information and research skills service:
