eBook access problems

We recently launched a scheme that gave you access to a wide range of eBooks which were automatically bought for you if accessed for more than 5 minutes.

This scheme has now come to an end and we are removing all the records for the eBooks that were not bought from the library catalogue. While these records are being removed you may try and access eBooks and be told you can not get access. We apologise for this problem, if this happens please email with the book information and we will investigate for you.
