e-Textbooks make life easier and your bag lighter

Hold on to your hats! e-Textbooks are here

Hold on to your hats! e-Textbooks are here.

Like many academic libraries around the world, Griffith Library is moving towards digital access to textbooks (e-textbooks).

We try to provide our students with an e-textbook where possible, so you can access textbooks at any time, from anywhere (because who doesn’t enjoy freedom like that?).

Let’s face it, nobody wants to lug around heavy, bulky textbooks. With e-textbooks, you can read them on your home computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device. No heavy lifting required!  And if you want to read a print copy, you still can. Simply, print out the chapter you want.
