Discovery and catalogue links to ebook records should now be working normally again.  Please let us know immediately if you experience any ongoing difficulties accessing ebooks or any other Library eresources.


Some links to Ebook Central ebooks appear to have been updated unexpectedly and without notice.  The supplier is currently working to resolve the problem.  In the meantime, some links from Discovery and the Library Catalogue to ebooks on the Ebook Central platform may not work as expected. 

Workaround

You can search for potentially useful ebooks directly within Ebook Central.  Once you have found the ebook through the internal Ebook Central search, it will give you a working link to the ebook. 

This also means that any ebooks you have found in Discovery, the catalogue or on reading lists with broken links can also be found by searching Ebook Central by title for the ebook you have identified.
