About E- Resources About E- Resources

UEA Library has a vast amount of electronic resources which are available to you 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. These can be accessed via a computer or mobile device from the comfort of your own home or whilst on campus. These resources include e- books, e- journals, and databases and you will need to have your UEA username and password in order to access them.

E Books

UEA owns thousands of academic e-books across all disciplines. In fact we could fill another Library building with the amount of content we own! The big advantage for using e-book`s is that they are instantly accessible, you don’t have to visit the library to loan them out and you won’t incur any fines for not returning them on time! The average tablet or laptop can store hundreds of books, far more than you could ever carry and with "keyword search" functions and chapter downloading you can get to the content you need fast without trawling through the whole book. The content can be enlarged if necessary and they are better for the environment. Search for your e-book in Library Search and filter your results by e-books. Click the "Online Resource" to open the e-book. Or search for e-book in Find Databases and browse our e-book collections.
