Ebrary Ebooks & MultiSearch Problem

There is a problem linking from our search engine to the Ebrary site where the books are hosted - it is in the process of being fixed.

In the meantime you can get around it by clicking on the ebooks button just below the main search box and choosing Ebrary. Once you're in Ebrary just search for the title of the book or type in your required keywords.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
