EBL (Ebook Library) Non-Fiction

You can see the entire EBL Catalogue of 500,000 resources by entering your search term here in this widget. If you find a book we don't own, you can send the Teacher-Librarian an email requesting the purchase of the book, or payment of its use for one day so that you can get any notes you need.

How good is that???!

Ebooks at BBC

BBC now has a huge range of eBooks available for students and staff. They are accessible on several different platforms. Just click on your preferred one, whether it's for fiction or non-fiction eBooks. Wheelers eBooks are for 2 week loans; EBL, Infobase and Gale Virtual Reference Library eBooks are available to everyone simultaneously, for any length of time.

The basics
The BBC Library provides access to a number of different e-book collections. You can choose from the specific e-book collections (such as EBL, Wheelers, etc.) for more details. Each one has a slightly different design to access, download and print an e-book.

ALTERNATIVELY, you can simply visit the Library Catalogue, search for all the resources on your topic, and choose an orange icon  source on that topic (if one exists), which will be an ebook.

Apps
Some e-book providers have their own, or recommended apps, which will be prominently displayed on their home page. They can allow you to access and read e-books from your mobile device.
