To login with your portal password, click the orange button and then select University of London Online Library (Portal Login).


The Online Library provides many core text books in electronic format, and the collection is constantly growing. Please note that not all your required textbooks can be provided but we consider all your suggestions. 

To read e-books you have downloaded from the Dawsons E-book Collection, you will need software called Adobe Digital Editions (or Bluefire Reader if you use Android). For details, see the How can I download ebooks? FAQ. You can choose either of these options from the ‘Select Reader’ drop-down menu when you select the download option in Dawsons.

You can also read downloaded books using the Kortext reader. When you select the download option in Dawsons, follow the download Kortext link and click the 'Signup' button to create a personal account with Kortext. Once you have done this, Kortext will appear in the ‘Select Reader’ drop-down menu when you download ebooks.

For some e-books, you will be asked to wait before you can read it. The Why do I sometimes need to wait to access an e-book? FAQ has details.
