How do I get access to the library's ebooks?
You can access all our e-books from home with the help of your student log in. You do not need a library card.
How do I read an e-book?
You can read an e-book online. Sometimes you can also download an e-book and read it offline. The possibility of downloading and the loan period time vary. To download an e-book, you will need to create an e-book account in the specific database which contain the e-book. When the loan period has expired, you will not be able to open the file, so you will need to download the e-book again.
To be able to read a downloaded e-book, you will need Adobe Digital Editions for computers and Aldiko or Bluefire reader for mobiles and tablets.
How do I search for e-books?
To search for the university library's e-books, you will need to use Libsearch. If you already have a title or author of the book you are looking for, use these as search words. If, on the other hand, you want to see which e-books the university has, you can go to the search box on the library's website, press the Search button. You then filter the hit list through Material Types and choose e-books.
How many people can borrow an e- book at the same time?
Depending on the type of borrowing licence the e-book has, the number of people who can borrow a book simultaneously can vary between one to an unlimited number of borrowers. This information is often available in the information concerning the e-book in Libsearch. If you have questions, please contact the library for assistance.
Can I print out an e-book?
Sometimes it is possible to print out a limited amount of a e-book for your own personal use. You will find more information on Libsearch's page about the e-book.
