Ebook Central

How to access eBooks from the Ebook Central platform.



  • Welcome. Access conditions to e-books are controlled by the publisher and vary. All of the ebooks that the library subscribes to, can be read online, and most also allow you to download them.


  • This guide specifically supports the use of Ebook Central books which require you to install digital rights software, before you can download the ebook. This guide features images that will walk you through the process step by step.


  • You can establish if an ebook is an Ebook Central title from the library catalogue record, See Opening an ebook from the catalogue for a visual example.  If the book you have selected isn’t an Ebook Central ebook, the Library’s broader eBook guide will be more helpful, alternatively once you have opened an ebook you can use the help feature within the ebook interface for support.
