Finding and Accessing Books

To find the books you need, search in Library Gateway, using Library Search. Search for either the title of the book you need, if you know it, or put some keywords into the search box. When you have found the title you want, use the shelfmark number you find in the record to locate the book in the library.  In the boxes below are some common shelfmarks for Allied Health subjects. or click on the link on the left-hand side for your subject area.

We will also buy online versions of books where they are available to purchase. Not all titles are automatically provided in an ebook version or suitable for University use. To access the ebooks, you need to be logged in to Library Gateway. If you are NOT logged in, you will not be granted access. The box below gives more detail on how to access ebooks.

Using eBooks

The Library aims to have both eBook and print versions of books as we know both formats are important especially when studying away from the University. Unfortunately publishers do not always offer an eBook in a format suitable for library use, or it is not available at the time we order the print version.


How to find eBooks

  • Go to the Library Gateway at: https://library.shu.ac.uk
  • Search for your keywords in Library Search e.g food tourism.
  • To the left of your search results click on Books / eBooks and Online.
  • Choose a book and follow the link(s) available under Find online. The links will either say View online at: or the name of an eBook provider.

Reading eBooks

How you can use an eBook depends on terms and conditions set by the publisher.  In most cases you will be able to choose between reading online and downloading the eBook for a limited period to your own device. When downloaded eBooks expire you can download them again.

Most eBooks can be read by more than one reader at a time but sometimes you may have to wait if another reader is using the book.You can search within individual eBooks, add notes and print or copy a limited number of pages from most eBooks.
