Ebooks: Using UL's online books

The Glucksman Library has over 450,000 ebooks in its collections to support teaching, learning and research. This comprehensive, multidisciplinary collection of ebooks will support the curriculum at UL and make it easier for students to interact with books no matter where they are or when they need the books. The collection includes titles from SAGE, Routledge, Wiley Blackwell, Oxford University Press, Elsevier, Springer and many other reputable academic publishers. UL staff and students can access ebooks 24 hours a day via the UL Library Search.
