eTextbook Programme

Enhance your students’ learning with the Library’s eTextbook Programme.

Students can download their textbook to multiple devices via the VLE for free, enabling them to access crucial course material from anywhere in the world at no cost.

The use of eTextbooks encourages students to engage deeply with their texts, while tutors also benefit from integrated teaching and learning tools and an analytics dashboard. Currently, large first year undergraduate and all distance learning cohorts are eligible for eTextbook provision through the Library. We aim to expand to a greater number of modules over the coming years.

The eTextbook Programme is the legacy of the Library’s Books Right Here Right Now project, which provided each student on selected modules with their own electronic copy of the core textbook for their course.
