The library has many more ebooks than print. You can find them in a couple of ways:

1. Use the catalogue

From the library homepage, select the catalogue tab above the main search box, and then enter the keywords of your topic. Do not try and enter an entire title or research question.

On the left hand side of the results list, you will see Electronic Books listed under the Material Type limit. Be sure to select this, then click the Include button above it. Of the 57 initial results in this search example, using the electronic books limit will refine the set to 25!

2. Use Summon search

In the main search box on the library homepage, enter the keywords of your topic in the search box.

From the results list, locate the eBook Full Text Online filter and use this to refine your results to just ebooks.
