Why use e-books?

There are a number of benefits to using e-books:

  • With remote access, e-books are there when you need them; not just in library opening hours.
  • Full text searching helps save you time when looking for relevant sections, passages and quotes.
  • Multiple e-books are easier to carry around when they are stored on your laptop, tablet or e-reader.
