Ebooks at UCL Institute of Education Library

Using ebooks is a great way to access the information you need wherever you are. All of our ebooks are findable through UCL Explore, and you will only need your UCL log-in and password to access them.

We aim to support IOE courses by acquiring electronic copies of reading list resources whenever these are available. We also try to ensure that our most popular titles are accessible as ebooks as well as in print. If you need an ebook that we don't currently have, please get in touch using the online request form.

This Libguide will show you how to use ebooks from the different ebook providers you will encounter. While publishers and providers will allow you to print and copy from ebooks, remember that your usage is also subject to copyright law.

If you have any questions or problems that aren't answered here, please let us know, so we can solve them as soon as possible.
