Accessing eTextbooks

Like eBooks, eTextbooks can be accessed from FindIt@Bham. If you want to find a specific eTextbook you know we have access to, you can search for it using the main FindIt@Bham homepage. Set the Search Filter to eJournals & eBooks Only (it is set to Everything by default), type the title and author of the eTextbook in the Search bar, and press Return. Select the record for the eTextbook in the results list and click the link under View It to access it. Please note that some eTextbook providers will ask you to register a personal account on your first access (see instructions under Public Notes).

If an eTextbook was requested for one of your modules, it will also be accessible from the resource list for that module. Go to ResourceLists@Bham, sign in with your University email and password, and search by module title, module code, or module lead to find the resource list associated with your module. Once on the resource list, find the title marked as "Nominated eTextbook" and click the View Online button to access it.
