As an Exeter student or staff member, you have free access to millions of e-book titles; these now vastly outnumber our print books! E-books offer significant advantages over traditional print books and overcome their various limitations:
To create such a large and comprehensive e-book collection, Library staff have sourced e-book titles from over 50 different publishers and platforms, each offering a slightly different experience. Some platforms allow you to download the full text but other e-books can only be read online. E-books we know will be popular are purchased outright but others are rented until we are sure they will be well used. Some e-books closely replicate the experience of reading a print book whilst others exploit digital technology to provide a cutting-edge learning experience. No two e-book platforms are ever the same, so it's a good idea to take some time to learn what each platform can offer.
