Finding books & electronic books

To find books on your subject area, search for them using Library Search.

Most of the printed computing books can be found on Level 2 of Adsetts Library, although some related to business can be found on Level 5.

If a book is in high demand, we try to make sure we have multiple copies and make it available electronically. 

Multidisciplinary eBook collections

The Library has a range of eBook collections. You can search Library Search to find eBooks about many different subjects and that approach may be quicker than searching individual collections. You can also browse or search with the collections directly.
