Accessing and using eBooks

We have a large number of eResources, including eBooks, that are available for staff and students to use while working and studying off campus. To access eBooks, use Discovery and you will be able to view and read a wide selection. 

Some eBooks only allow a limited number of users to view them at the same time. Due to high demand, it is currently not possible to download eBooks in order to increase access for everyone. They can still be read online and with many it is possible to copy or download a portion to refer back to later.

If you have any problems accessing the resources please contact libhelp@hw.ac.uk
