Books and e-books

  • Most of your books will be located in Headington Library, although there may also be some copies in the Education collections at Harcourt Hill.

    To find a book, just type the author, title or subject that you are interested into the Library catalogue and use the shelfmark to find them on on the shelf.

    E-books are found the same way, type what you are looking for into the Library catalogue and then select 'Electronic books catalogue' from the left hand side to filter your results so it shows e-books only.  Once you have found a book you would like to read online, choose 'Access the resource' to start reading it.

    We will try to make as many of your course texts as possible available electronically - we understand that you could be based some distance from campus and may not be a regular visitor to the library.
