How to get the best use of the ebooks provided by Unitec Library.

How to find Unitec Library eBooks

  1. Search for your topic in the library catalogue
  2. Refine these results to show eBooks only by going to 'Refine My Results'  in the left pane
  3. Select 'Books'
  4. Next, go to 'Show Only', also in the left pane
  5. Select 'Full Text Online'

How does it work?

Once you’ve found the book you want to borrow:

  1. Check you have a compatible device 
  2. Get any required software, apps or accounts. See information on software and apps required
  3. Download your chosen eBook
  4. Select your lending time. After your lending time is up your title will be automatically removed

If you’re doing this for the first time and are unfamiliar with downloading software or apps, the initial setup may take around 20 minutes. Next time you access an eBook will be much faster as you've completed the initial set-up - it'll take about 5 minutes to download and transfer from now on.
