Welcome to your guide to using eBooks for study and research.

Why use eBooks?

The Library has eBooks covering many subject areas. Read online or download and read offline on your own device.

The benefits to using eBooks are:

  • access them anywhere, anytime
  • use an eBook at the same time as other people
  • search the content for key terms
  • bookmark pages, add notes, share readings, save references and keep track of what you've read
  • get eBooks faster than most print copies.

If you need help using eBooks, please use the "Ask a Librarian" service on this page.

Accessing eBooks

All Library eBooks can be found by using Te Waharoa search.

Many eBooks are accessed direct from the publisher's website or database - simply read online or download a PDF just like ejournal articles.

The most common eBook platforms are ProQuest Ebook Central and EBSCO. You can find further instructions in this guide on how to use these.
