An e-book is an electronic version of a book that is found and read online. E-books the Library subscribes to are included in the catalogue, we also have listings of books that have been digitised and free e-books which you may find useful, linked to below. Please note that reference works are listed separately under encyclopaedias and dictionaries. These web sites are of various types, including:
- Well-known books available for general use on the internet , sometimes with search facilities included, enabling the text to be searched.
- Rare research material made available to the scholarly community either through digitisation projects, which preserve the appearance of the original text, or after conversion of the text for online display.
- Portals offering access to extensive collections of e-texts.
