Parkes Library, Special Collections, Hartley Library: E-Books

The Parkes Library was established by James Parkes, a tireless campaigner against anti-Semitism, and is a major resource for the study of Jewish/non-Jewish relations across the ages.

Finding E-Books

E-Books available through the Library's subscriptions (access limited to members of the University) are included in Library Search. Select 'Search Only Electronic Books' to limit your search.

You can also find E-Books by directly searching individual collections. For more information see the E-Books LibGuide.
