We subscribe to several ebook collections. This means you have 24-hour access to a wide variety of titles from any computer with an internet connection. Ebooks allow you to read them online; some are downloadable for a set period; you can search for keywords; make notes on a text; and print or copy and paste a copyright allowance of text (usually 10% or one chapter of a text).

You will need your University of Cumbria email address and password to access ebooks from off campus.
