Oxford University Press (OUP) have made their most read History resources from 2023 freely available to everyone until 30th April 2024 covering a wide range of historical topics. Until the end of April, you have access to more ebook chapters, research encyclopedia entries, and journal articles than ever before.
The following is a list of new ebooks received by the Library during January. More complete listings for the year can be found on our website’s new books page
One reason ebooks are so popular is that they are always available but since print books renew themselves automatically once borrowed, if you want a print book that is on loan to someone else, you really want to reserve it!
All books you or anyone else borrow are renewed automatically until someone else reserves them. As soon as you reserve a copy using the Library Catalogue, we will email the person with the book due soonest and ask them to bring it back within one week. Once they bring it back, we will email you to let you know it is on the reservation shelves in the Atrium, waiting for you to collect. Since the Library is open 24/7 and you can borrow books online, this means you can collect books 24/7.
