A major ebook platform is due to close at the end of this month. If you use it, here’s what to do…

The Dawson Era logo

Dawson Era, one of our ebook suppliers, has recently gone into administration and as such, the platform will close after 31st July 2020.

The good news

There will be no loss of access to the electronic titles we have with Dawson Era. We have already arranged alternative access through other suppliers without exception, so you can continue to find the ebooks on Discover More and access will continue.

What you (may) need to do

What will be lost is any notes or annotations you may have made on the Dawson Era platform. If you have any such notes and you wish to keep them, please transfer these to other locations before 31 July. For example, if you use referencing software like RefWorks or EndNote you can add notes from Dawson Era there, attaching them to the record for the relevant book or chapter.

This is a screenshot of the Dawson Era platform, and displays the ebook 'Mentoring in Action'. On the left-hand menu, the area where notes are kept is highlighted.
This view of the Dawson Era platform shows where notes can be made or kept. Any such notes will be unavailable after 31 July 2020.

We apologise for not being able to give you more notice and hope this does not cause significant inconvenience.
