Access ends on the 31st July.


NetLibrary ebooks now on EBSCOHost

Ebooks formerly supplied by the NetLibrary platform have been transfered to the EBSCOHost platform. The change reflects the demise of NetLibrary as a distinct business  since its take over  by EBSCO last year.

E-Journal A-Z name change
