More new e-books added to the collection

Alloway Library's acquisitions librarian, Shirley Lee has added 74 new NetLibrary e-book titles into the catalogue. "This is good-news," she says, "most of these are shared with us free-of-charge through our membership in COPPUL. " Alloway Library purchased additional titles to compliment the unique needs of TWU scholars.

NetLibrary e-books are easy to use. As with PDF documents using Adobe Acrobat, you can search for text, save, print and email pages, enlarge or reduce the image and also copy items from the e-book into another document. For many users, the trickiest part to reading an e-book is using the "previous" and "next" buttons at the top right hand corner of the viewer instead of the greyed out controls at the bottom of the page.

Here is a partial list of titles. You can read these books online by clicking on the link in the catalogue record. (TWU Login may be required.)
