And over summer when our campus libraries are closed, why not try an eBook from OverDrive – our newish collection of fun (or leisure) reading eBooks and audiobooks – paid for from the Students Services and Amentities Fees (SAFF).

OverDrive has over 1100 titles ranging from biography to crime, romance to science fiction and includes travel guides, cookbooks , history, health and fitness.

You could even search on the word Christmas for some festive ideas…

With OverDrive there are no late fees as books are automatically returned. You can access OverDrive from Windows, Mac, and your mobile devices.

A great browsing collection. Once connected to OverDrive browse and search for eBooks and audiobooks. When you find a book you want to read, click on the title and select Borrow to be taken to your Bookshelf.
Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.

How will you find OverDrive books?

Simply click on the OverDrive banner on the Library home page to start! (you won’t find OverDrive books through our Library Search).
