You have access to two sorts of ebooks. Library eBooks which you "borrow" and then have to "return" after at most seven days and Kortext which are yours to keep. This video explains how to access the Library eBooks for your module from the reading list.
Free personal eTextbooks are provided to all students enrolled on undergraduate and postgraduates modules based at the UK Hendon campus. The eTextbook is yours to keep through your degree and after. You can read your books online or download them to your device.
