eBooks!

To date, we have amassed over 230,000 eBooks in our collection, and over 50,000 of these have been acquired in the last year. Not only great for you and your study, but great for the environment too!

Creating an electronic book takes three times fewer raw materials than a print book and uses seven times less water. With the book-printing industry consuming 16 million tons of paper each year, up to 32 million trees are felled annually (Green Point Publishing, 2015). The use of eBooks save trees from destruction, reduces the need for paper and eliminates packing materials.

With the current situation ongoing and the use of online materials more important than ever for students, it’s important to know how to find resources. The Library currently has eBooks from eighteen different suppliers. As eBook functionality is not standardised, this varies considerably across the different platforms. Our eBook webpage has handy guides for each supplier to help you out! The best place to search for eBooks is LibrarySearch. Remember to be logged in before beginning your search!
