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).
Browse the newly purchased online and print stock relating to your subject.
