Boost for online text books

We understand that the Health Library is not always the easiest place to visit and many people are trying to fit study around work, shifts and family life. To reflect this, there has been an expansion to the collection of online books. These titles can be viewed at home by logging in using either your Keele or NHS Athens account.

This latest collection of a further 216 books has now been added to MyiLibrary, where titles can be browsed by subject, or using an author or title search. The other great advantage of online books is the ability to search the book content itself, either within an individual text or across the full MyiLibrary collection. For a quick overview on the use of e-books, please visit the online library guide.

NHS Athens account holders can also use the NHS Evidence e-book gateway to search this collection of books inconjunction with e-books purchased nationally through the Core Content.

All e-books will shortly be listed as part of the Library catalogue. Please ask at library for more details.
