VLeBooks is the Askews and Holts ebook service for academic libraries to read and download, purchased by the University of Huddersfield Library.
A lot of the content used to be on the DawsonEra platform before it closed in July 2020.
VLeBooks requires only that you use a web browser and requires no additional software or plug-ins.
It supports the following browsers: Internet Explorer 8 and above, Firefox 4 and above, Chrome 12 and above, Safari 5 and above.
VLeBooks can be read online. Click the read online button to start reading.
Some ebooks are restricted to one user at time by the publisher. Some titles in VLe can only be accessed by a limited number of users simultaneously. You will be unable to read or download the title until a copy becomes available if the maximum number of users has been reached.

For downloads on a mobile device, the VleBooks eBook Reader or Bluefire reader and an Adobe ID is required.
