Using eBooks: BibliU


About BibliU

This guide will introduce you to the BibliU eBook platform, how to use it and its main features. 

From January 2021 we will be running a pilot of the BibliU eTextbook platform, to allow us to provide additional online resources. For this pilot we are providing access to selected titles that have been identified as essential on reading lists.

Accessing books on BibliU

Logging in to BibliU 

Navigate to and under "Login through your university" search for University of Suffolk. You will then be able to log in with your university username and password. 

Using the BibliU App 

As well as accessing BibliU through your browser, you can download the app to your device and use this to browse and read. If you want to download or read books offline you will need to download the app. For more information on downloading the app you can visit the BibliU website

Finding books

On the homepage you will see available titles, and can browse from there. Alternatively, search for the book by its title in the search box at the top of the screen. You can also search for keywords and see where they appear in the books in your library. 

Navigating the library and your books 

To access a book, simply click on the cover. This will open the book and take you to the table of contents. 

You can then browse the book by scrolling, using the links in the contents to navigate straight to a chapter or select a page number to go to.
