Useful E-Book Collections for Education

All e-books are on our catalogue.  We also subscribe to the Sage Catalyst E-book Collection for Education

Print Books


All e-books are accessible from the Library catalogue.  Most of our print books can be borrowed.  Our printed books are arranged by subject classification. Most books for Education are on Floor 4 of the Library, or on Floor 5 (Social Sciences) . There is a Schools Collection on Floor 4 which consists of books to support children in the classroom. It includes picture books, junior fiction and non-fiction books with some schemes of work too. 

If the print book you want is on loan, you can place a hold on it and you will get an email when it comes back.
