E-books on demand@UCL

By Kieron L Jones, on 20 November 2014

UCL Library Services is now running three pilot projects involving users in the acquisition of e-book content.

For a trial period, UCL students and staff can read and download 1000s of extra e-books across a wide range of subjects. UCL Library Services will buy those used most often and add them to our existing collection of over 300,000 e-books.

Like existing UCL e-books, these additional e-books can be found using Explore – search All Resources then filter by Online resource and Books. Alternatively you can go directly to one of the three websites where the additional e-books are hosted:

Go to our Ebooks on demand@UCL webpage to find out more.
