We try really hard to make sure that you have access to all the resources you need. 

If you:

  • cannot find a reading list text on LibrarySearch
  • think there are too few copies of a text in the library
  • want something specific for your own interest or research

then please send me an email or speak to one of your student representatives.

Books, books, books

Shelves full of colourful books.Books are an essential resource for academic study (though you will need to go beyond them!). Luckily, we have well over 100,000 of them in the Drill Hall Library, and access to thousands of electronic books as well.

You can find physical and electronic books through your university LibrarySearch, using the options in the left-hand menu.

  • Canterbury Christ Church University - go to LibrarySearch and ensure you are logged in.
  • Greenwich - log in to the Portal, go to the My Learning (students) or Learning Support (staff) page and click the link to LibrarySearch from here. Ensure you log in. This works much more effectively than going directly to LibrarySearch.
  • Kent - go to LibrarySearch and ensure you are logged in.

Ebooks

Ebooks are available from each university - these can be accessed from home and in most cases can be used by multiple people at once.

Search your university LibrarySearch, and select ebooks from the left-hand menu. If no ebook option appears, it simply means we don't have any ebooks for that search, but you can always try a different search.
