Five reasons to use ebooks

Accessing ebooks

How do I find an ebook?

You can search for ebooks using Summon.  If an ebook is available you will see a link to the eBook full text online as  well as an orange online icon.

You can also use the filters on the left hand menu to refine your search to items available online.

Who can use ebooks?

Ebooks are available through Summon to all students and staff at the University of Huddersfield.  You will be required to log in using your University username and password.

Can I access ebooks off-campus?

You can access ebooks off-campus. Search Summon and you will be prompted to log in using your University username and password to access an ebook.

An ebook is visible in Summon, but I can't read or download it?

Please email to report the problem.  It maybe that the amount of credits for the ebook has run out and is awaiting renewal or that there is a problem with an ebook platform.
