Getting the books you need

Library Search allows you to search all our print and the majority of our online books. It will show you if the book is currently available and how you can access the title. If you would like to recommend a new title or additional copies of an existing book, use our More Books service for students.

Our online books are supplied by a wide range of publishers, and sometimes it is useful to search within particular collections, some of which are listed below.  Further collections are listed in the A-Z list of Eresources - filter the list to 'Resource type' = E-book.  All our online books can be read wherever you have internet access.  Many can also be downloaded for offline reading.
