The Dawsons E-Book Collection, the Online Library’s principal e-book platform, is being retired on the 31 July. Therefore the Online Library has set up a new e-book platform called VLeBooks.
To access your text books from VLeBooks, please follow this link and then select ‘University of London Online Library (Portal Login)’ to login with your Portal username and password, or select ‘OpenAthens’ if you have an Athens account. Soon you will be able to access your books as normal, by finding them in the Online Library’s Summon search engine.
- If you cannot find a book in the Summon search results, please log directly into VLeBooks and then search for the book.
- There may be direct links to Dawsons in your Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle), which will no longer work. We will replace these links as soon as possible, but in the meantime please log directly into VLeBooks and then search for the book.
- We also have many e-book titles in E-Book Central (ProQuest) and Cambridge Core. These will not be affected by this change.
If you have any questions, please contact the Online Library Enquiry Service.
We hope that you will enjoy using the new and improved e-book platform, and would like apologise for any inconvenience this migration may cause.
