New eBook collection – Wiley Online Library30 October 2015
The library service is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Wiley Online Library eBook collection for this academic year. The collection contains over 17,000 eBook titles and the content encompasses a broad range of subjects including the humanities, social sciences and STM subjects (scientific, technical and medical). The collection is comprised of a variety of newer and older monographs which we hope will be invaluable to students in their respective disciplines.

Make sure that if you are not on-campus that you log in using the institutional login to get access:
This collection has been made available under a model we call “evidence based acquisition”. This means that we pay for access to the whole collection for one year at a fraction of the price it would normally cost to buy this number of books. At the end of the period, the library purchases those books which have been used the most, up to the value of the initial investment. This model ensures that we get great value for money from what we spend and that what we buy at the end of it is what we know, from the usage data, that staff and students are using!
