We’re constantly updating our collections so that you can access the best resources possible.

Over the last few weeks we have been busy adding new e-books to CityLibrary Search: some of these are brand new titles, including those chosen by you through one of our Recommend a book for purchase schemes; others are digital versions of print books which are inaccessible because of the lockdown.

Here, our Subject Librarians have picked out some highlights from the new items in our collections to help you while you are studying at home. The title links will take you through to the e-book record where you can login to access the full text.
