Some interesting titles

Very Short Introductions - VSI

Very Short Introductions offer concise introductions to a diverse range of subject areas. All titles provide intelligent and serious introductions, written by experts in the field who combine facts, analysis, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make challenging topics highly readable.

Accessing ebooks

The best place to find ebooks is the library catalogue. From there, click the title of an ebook to view the catalogue record for it, then click 'Connect to Ebook' underneath the title and publication information. 

If you are on campus or connected via remote access clicking on an article link should take you to the full text of an ebook.

If you are not on campus or using remote access please click on the link then look for an option to login via Shibboleth or via your institution.

Different ebook platforms will have different login pages with different appearances, but you are always looking for Shibboleth or institution login.
