Important changes to our services. Find out more


During August 2021-July 2022 we are piloting access to a range of etextbook titles alongside our existing ebook collections. The What are etextbooks section explains how these texts differ from ebooks and can benefit your online learning experience.

What are etextbooks?

Etextbooks are interactive, digital versions of core texts that are available anytime, anywhere. They can be easily accessed and downloaded to your device, meaning you can be learning from day one of your course.

Our current etextbooks pilot (phase 2) will run from 2nd August 2021 until 31st July 2022. For this pilot, we have partnered with BibliU, a digital etextbook provider. Please see Accessing etextbooks section for more details.


What are the benefits of the BibliU etextbook scheme?

  • You get personal access for 12 months to your essential reading
  • You can read anytime, anywhere
  • Download onto 3 different devices, including your laptop, phone, and tablet
  • Broaden and deepen your reading during the year
  • You can search keywords, go directly to pages or chapter, highlight passages, make notes, and adjust colours and text size
