Search for books and ebooks in Search + Find, our library discovery service.
When you find the book you want you’ll see a shelf number for print books, this will help you find it in the library. For ebooks, simply click on the 'Full Text' link to read it online or download it.
If you know what you're looking for, then use the authors' surname and a word or two from the title: try to choose unique ones. For instance, type in stroud engineering mathematics.
Alternatively, you can search using subject words: try starting with engineering mathematics and use the filter in the left-hand column to narrow down your search.
Remember to be as specific as possible when searching for a topic. [Search + Find Help]
