Books and e-books

Information about using books and e-books for your research.

You will use books for your studies, either in electronic (e-book) or print format.

Books are a key source of information, but you have to use your judgement as to their usefulness. Look at a book review if unsure of its quality or its author.

Books and e-books can provide:

  • an overview of a topic
  • case studies and additional information
  • bibliography or reference list (to direct you to other useful resources).
