Love ebooks?...We do!

Dawsonera update - 5 August

Due to their parent company going into administration, the Dawsonera ebook platform is no longer available. All ebooks that were hosted on Dawsonera have been transferred toVLeBooks, and all links (e.g. in StarPlus, Blackboard or resource lists) have been redirected to this new platform.

Unfortunately, any notes that a registered user may have saved in a Dawsonera ebook will not be transferred to VLeBooks.

We have thousands of ebooks that can be accessed via StarPlus.

If you are a registered staff member or student, choose "StarPlus - Library Catalogue" in MUSE and then:

  • Type a title or keyword into the search box of the 'University Collections' tab, then click on the search button
  • Refine the search to ebooks only by choosing 'Show only - Full Text Online' and then 'Resource Type - books'

For External users, StarPlus also contains links to over 2 million open access ebooks via Primo Central. To search:

  • Type a title or keyword into the search box of the 'Articles and More' tab
  • Choose 'Primo Central' from the dropdown menu, and click on the search button
  • Refine the search by choosing 'Show only - Full Text Online' and then 'Resource Type - books'
