CapturefthAs part of our subscription we have full access to the FT ePaper – an exact digital replica of the FT Newspaper.  The FT ePaper is now even easier to use on your computer, tablet and phone. The FT have upgraded it with great new features and functionality, including:

  • Offline access, without needing to download a pdf
  • Pinch-and-zoom viewing, for easy reading on your mobile
  • A clear, streamlined contents menu, making it easy to choose and click on articles

When you access the ePaper the on-screen tool tips will guide you through what’s new, or just click on the ? icon in the top menu. Why does this matter? Just check out this video ‘Punk FT – EU models for a post-Brexit UK‘ as a real gem available online about the options for the UK post-Brexit. This question ultimately revolves around the free movement of labour versus goods, as the UK considers a journey without trade agreements with the remaining EU members.

We’re often asked how many books do we have in the Library. Happily that question is answered in this blog post. We currently have 202,827 ejournals and an amazing 64 laptops available for loan,  over 4000 DVDs to hire, nearly 8000 ebooks to view and well over 240,000 books in the collection. The ejournals available today have increased fourfold in just a couple of years.
