What e-books are available to NHS staff and students?

Search for electronic books available to you through the library catalogue.

When searching the library catalogue to restrict your search just to electronic books you will need to perform an Advanced Search. On the Advanced Search screen click Restrict by material type and then check the box for Electronic Book.

To access e-books you will require an OpenAthens account.

You may suggest titles that you think the library should purchase as an electronic book using our book suggestions page.
