Looking for resources? Use Library search (the new name for SOLAR).

We purchase e-books from different suppliers, and  you will notice that some e-books  differ in their look and feel. However, there are some common features to all e-books.

When you find a book on Library Search, click on the 'Online access' button to gain access to the e-book.








Once you're on the e-book platform, you may have to click on a link to open the book: e.g.Read OnlineView this book or something similar. Sometimes there is a PDF option.


The number of people that can use an e-book at the same time varies, depending on the supplier.


Occasionally you will be advised that the e-book is in use and that you should try again later. E-books will open on a first come, first served basis.




When the e-book opens, there will usually be a navigation section on the left of the screen for accessing chapters. The full text of the e-book will be displayed on the right.
