How to access ebooks

The library provides access to a number of ebooks and our collection is growing. You can search for ebooks in iFind, along with the print copies that we offer. We've produced a guide to ebooks to guide you through accessing our ebook collections. Click on the link below to view the guide.

Library floor plan

Geography books are shelved at G on Level 2 West - one floor down from the entry level. You will also find some geology and climate books in Level 2 East. The floor plan below breaks down where you can find books on our shelves.

If you are looking for a specific book you will need to find its call number in the library catalogue as there are a large number of shelves. Ask at the Information Desk on Level 3 if you need help.
