E-textbooks are here!

Here at Cathal Brugha St Library, e-textbooks are now part of our repertoire.

We now have a range of e-books including such standards as Clay's handbook of environmental health, Stephen Page's Tourism management, Chris Cooper's Tourism: principles and practice, Glenn Bowdin's Events management, John Cousins Food and beverage management and Stanley Cauvain's Baking problems solved.

Search for your desired textbook on the catalogue, and if it comes up as an "electronic resource" then you will probably be able to read it as an e-book on the screen in front of you.

There are legal restrictions on copying and downloading, but having the textbook to read on-screen is surely a real step forward!
