Please provide us with some feedback about this new acquisition.

Introducing our new eBook database: EBook Central

We’re delighted to announce a new eBook platform called EBook Central, which provides a huge range of electronically available books.  To prove this point, I searched for ‘marketing communications’ and received over forty thousand results. On the left-hand side of the screen you will be able to select a date range, subject area, or a report.

To find this database, all you need to do is to go to the Library website > Find > Databases > E > Ebook Central. Please provide us with your feedback.

Introducing our new New eBook database…Bibliotech

We are delighted to announce a new accessible-friendly eBook platform, Bibliotech, which is available via the Library website > Find > Databases > B > Bibliotech.  At the moment it includes several study skills eBooks which you are welcome to download, and in the near future we hope to expand this collection to cover high-demand books, some of which have not been available as electronic versions before. This is a major step forward in being able to deliver our most popular  print titles in an electronic format, and eliminating the stress of waiting in a queue for a highly-prized core text book that it is always on loan.

I’m sorry for any delay in setting my calendar up, but it’s been a hectic semester with forty
hours of teaching already delivered!
