Can I download one of the Library's ebooks to my Kindle or to another ebook reader?
Unfortunately, downloading some suppliers' ebooks to ebook readers is not possible for other technical or copyright reasons.
What's the difference between reading online and downloading?
Downloading means saving an ebook to a device, such as a laptop, pc, smartphone or ebook reader. An internet connection is not needed to read the title once downloaded.
Please note that some of the Library's ebook suppliers do not allow ebooks to be downloaded and some others require software or apps to be downloaded. In some cases this means that ebooks cannot be downloaded to University pcs. For more details, please click on the relevant suppliers above.
