Login to/Access e-books

Click on the Full text available link underneath the book title to view the access options.  The two options are:

SGUL users log in here

NHS users login in here

Occasionally, books may only be available to one group of users, depending on how they are licensed.

The majority of e-books will allow multiple concurrent users, however we do have some where the numbers of concurrent users is limited.

E-books can be accessed on mobile devices.

For SGUL staff and students the following video shows you show to access e-resources, including e-books, when you are away from campus. You need your SGUL username and password to login in. If you are NHS staff, have a look at our NHS Essentials libguide which has a section on how to access e-resources. You can find it here.

If you are SGUL staff, or a student on a SGUL course, select the SGUL users option.  This is recommended even if you are also a member of the Library through the NHS (for example, you work for the St George's NHS Trust and are also studying part time at SGUL).  Put in your SGUL login (username and password) in the boxes requested and you will be taken to the first screen of the e-book.

The Ebook central platform requires extra information when logging in. If you are an SGUL student or staff member, please select St George's University of London - Shibboleth.
