A Digital Choice – Reading eBooks on or offline

EBooks are becoming more common place in every day life.  Every day we read documents, information and more on our PCs but what about when you want to study or relax with a digital book from the library, away from your monitor?

We have the answer! eBooks are now able to be downloaded from the library on a ‘digital loan’!  You can loan the book for up to 2 weeks and after that time, you don’t have to return it – that’s all taken care of for you!

Come along on 22nd February to find out more about how to download eBooks to your portable device such as an iPad, tablet or smart device or even simply your laptop whilst also discussing how to advertise this useful tool to your students – especially when they are fast approaching one of the most reading intensive times of the academic year!

The session runs from 1pm to 2pm in the LiNC Development Room (top floor) on 22nd February

Book through the Staff Development wiki:

  1. Unfortunately I don’t think I can make this session. Can you download ebooks to a Kindle?

  2. I’ll aim to disseminate the information from the session afterwards. Some suppliers I believe do support Kindles – I will be testing this over the next week.
