The library service aims to make digital content available via online reading lists (Leganto). Ensuring resources are available has many positive impacts on user experience.
Some titles are restricted to 1 or 3 students at the same time where, access is time limited in a similar way to borrowing a physical text from the library. If the title times out, it can simply be re-borrowed, provided there is no queue ahead of you. Where possible the library will try to purchase unlimited licenses.
Downloading E-Books can vary slightly between eBook platforms. The three main platforms the library use via reading lists are E-Bookcentral, Kortext, VLE books. Specific help and information for each of these platforms can be found in this Libguide.
E-Books can be accessed via specific course reading lists (Leganto) and via library search (Primo).
When searching via Library search users can refine title search by using the faceted navigation on the left hand side of the search page. To select online resources:
