eBooks: Introduction

A guide on accessing eBooks through our various databases.


The library provides access to thousands of eBooks across a number of databases. Many of these come as part of large general collections, while a lot are purchased and made accessible individually.

Our main eBook providers are APA PsycBooks, VLeBooksEBSCO and O' Reilly Learning. Some eBooks are available by searching the catalogue, some through Discovery, but all are accessible through the individual databases.

These guides will show you how to use each eBook database, and give you an insight into what type of material you can find in them.
