Since the start of the Coronavirus closure we’ve opened up access to 29 new databases and e-book bundles, which includes more than 350,000 e-books. In collaboration with our vendors and publishers, we have also been able to provide access to many more online resources.
We are keeping a blog post updated that outlines the e-book collections that you can use as well as some of the initiatives which have been announced internationally to keep the world reading during self-isolation. You can also follow a researcher’s journey navigating through these new resources.
To help you discover new e-books we have changed the LibrarySearch homepage, so you can see all the new e-books purchased relevant to your Faculty.
If the book you need is not currently available as an e-book through LibrarySearch, then please suggest it for purchase as an e-book through our online form. We will respond to your request within 5 working days and let you know if the e-book is available to add to our collection and update you on how long it will be before you can read it. Most e-books are normally available within 5 working days of purchase.
If it isn’t available as an e-book, we’ll let you know and discuss the potential of obtaining alternative titles.
