Accessing eBooks at exam time

Exams start on Monday 26th April which means that some of our eBooks will be in high demand. We have been buying extra copies of our most popular eBook titles but many of them have a limit on the number of people who can use them at once.

Please check Discovery and use copies on both platforms if available – VLeBooks and Ebook Central. We may have two sets of Ebook Central copies due to publisher permissions  – please use both sets as they are not the same copies.

Some eBooks can only be read online.  If a copy is not available immediately, please keep trying.
The Ebook Central platform will allow five minutes reading time if all copies are in use.
A copy will become free as soon as someone else stops using it. If all copies are currently in use please try again later.

If possible, please plan in advance and make sure you have the information you need before your exam starts.  Many eBooks will allow you to copy and/or download an amount set by the publisher which you can keep and refer back to.
If you have any questions, let us know via ISHelp@hw.ac.uk
