Access to eBooks & Journals in the time of COVID-19

The University Library has an information page on accessing material online.
We're adding eBooks to our list that lecturers have requested be available during the lock down period, but it may not be a comprehensive list. If a title is not on the list, then it may still be available somewhere. Likewise, the UL is making every effort to add the 'COVID-19' acquired material to iDiscover as quick as they can.

There appears to be some issues for people accessing our usual materials, and enquiries are being made, but in the meantime my best advice for finding material is:

An increasing number of books relevant to Earth Sciences are now available via EBSCO eBooks & AudiobooksProQuest eBook Central, and Cambridge Univ. Press Online Books. You can access these books by searching for titles using iDiscover, or by browsing the Earth Sciences eBook lists below (alphabetical by author/editor):






These books, and hundreds of others, are made available as part of a project developed by the College Libraries Forum and funded by a donation from Professor Robert Z. Aliber, of St John's College Cambridge, Emeritus Professor of International Economics and Finance, Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago. The project is supported by virtually all Colleges, 25 Departments and Faculties, and the Isaac Newton Trust.
