A guide to accessing and using ebooks available at Monash University

About ebooks

The Library has a large collection of books in electronic format.  Our digital first policy means where a book is available in electronic format, we will purchase an ebook version instead of the print copy. This makes it accessible to more people at any one time.

Using ebooks: 

  • Helps you save time by accessing texts online, anywhere
  • Allows you to print, copy or PDF ebook content (within the publisher’s specified limits)
  • Means never getting an overdue fine
  • Lightens the load in your backpack
