You can log into this database using either your student portal password or your Online Library Athens account.


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). Read this support page for details. 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.
