Disruption to eBooks access

Dawsonera, one of the library’s eBook platforms, which provides nearly 3000 titles, has ceased trading. As a result, the RGU library is working with other eBook suppliers to move impacted titles to new platforms, which means links to Dawsonera eBooks on LibrarySearch and your online Reading Lists will be updated.

However, as this change has impacted a large number of universities and colleges across UK, the transition is a significant piece of work and there may be a period of time in August when these eBooks are inaccessible. However, we will try to minimise any disruption as much as possible and will provide updates on the Library Blog.

Therefore, we would advise that if you need to consult any eBooks over the next few weeks to follow these steps now:

      • Go to LibrarySearch and search for the eBook
      • Once you have found it click the title to get the full record and look at the View Online link to see if the eBook is from RGU Dawsonera e.g.

      • If it is from RGU Dawsonera please consult the eBook now rather than at the start of August in case there is a gap in the access.

If you have any queries please contact library@rgu.ac.uk.
