Download e-books to your tablet, Nook or Kindle Fire

Sometimes you just want to read an e-book where you have no Internet connection.   You can download many e-books to use off-line for short periods, as if “borrowing” a copy of the e-book for 14 days, from our two largest e-book suppliers, Ebrary and MyiLibrary.

Many of the ebooks you will find through the Discovery Service come from these suppliers.  Ebrary ebooks have a characteristic grey interface and feature a prominent “download” button on the top toolbar, while the MyiLibrary logo tops each of their ebooks.

These guides and more are available from the Library guides section of the Library website.

    Hey there terrific website! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount work? I’ve no understanding of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I just needed to ask. Thank you!

      Thanks Shannon,

      It’s hard to answer your question. Running a blog on WordPress can be very easy – go to the WordPress site, and you can be up and running in minutes, no programming skills required.

      If you want to, you can do an endless amount of customisation which could require some skills and time … but this is not necessary.

      Of course the important thing is content – and that can eat up as much time as you care to throw at it!

      What I tend to do is get in the habit of posting a brief blog post whenever an issue needs raising, a new service is offered, or I want to promote a service or product to clients. Blog posts can be shared from WordPress with Facebook and Twitter, although these create more interest if they also sport original content and alerts rather than being just a syndicated alert system for a blog. Post a variety of media – images, embedded video clips, etc. Short, punch posts are often more attractive to time-starved audiences than longer, involved posts and are much more convenient to write. I also try to write about one idea per post, so that each post covers what it says in the title and it is easy to browse the list of recent posts and read just the ones that sound relevant to you. Aggregators such as Storify, Prismatic, Twitter, Google Alerts, Feedly, etc. (pick whichever suits you best) might also help by bringing interesting content on disparate topics to you to curate and share.
