E-books on library mezzanine iMacs.

e-books screenshotIf you are accessing our e-book collection using the iMacs on the Library mezzanine you will see a message pop up advising you to agree to download Adobe Acrobat. If this message appears go to ‘All programs’ and open up Adobe Reader X to read the e-book

IT are currently looking into making sure Adobe is accessible on all these machines.

E-books that can’t be searched

Some of our e-books have text which can’t be searched. This is due to the publishers proving their e-copy as a scanned PDF document, rather than a searchable text document.

These books can still be read online, printed and copied and pasted.
