About Ebooks

How can I find an ebook?

You can search for individual titles using SUPrimo, as you would for any book.

Ebooks are easily identified in SUPrimo, just click on the title or   link.

Most ebooks are included in SUPrimo. Search by title, author or keywords. You can use the Show only options on the left hand-side of the screen to narrow your search to ebooks. 

Alternatively, you can search our EResources page for a list of ebook collections.

Also, visit our Subject help guide  for more detailed information about useful resources for your area of study.

How do I view the content of ebooks?

 Most ebooks are subscription based, you will need to login with your University of Strathclyde DS username and password to view the full content.  

Most ebooks give you full-text access online, but restrict the amount you can print or download in accordance with UK copyright.  

Some of the ebook collections limit the number of concurrent users who can access them. 

A small number of ebooks are published as Open Access, meaning they are freely available to view online.
