In the guide there is information about reading, downloading and borrowing e-books. There is also information about Novia's e-book services and some free services.
The e-books the library has acquired can be read in a web browser or downloaded to your own computer or mobile device. A downloaded e-book is borrowed and will not be accessible after the loan period. You can also reserve an e-book that is on loan.
The library tries to acquire electronic versions of the textbooks whenever these are available. Unfortunately the supply of electronic textbooks offered to organisations is very limited. The publishers also limit the access to the newest edition, often only the older editions of a textbook are available electronically. Sometimes there are also e-versions of books available, but not with library license.
If you have questions or wish to get guidance in using e-resources, please contact your library.
Please contact us also if you need e-books that are not included in the databases, we order them if possible.
