Even More Books

£10,000 More Books

Due to many of us working remotely from the university, and wanting to continue with your studies, we launched a £10,000 fund to support students who are working at a distance over the next few weeks, similar that we did back in January - which proved to be extremely popular with you.

Thousands of books were added into Summon for you to pick from.

This campaign has now ended, as we have bought a number of fantastic eBooks, to support you which you can find on the Even More Books page -  but we are still very happy to receive suggestions for eBooks to purchase, using the link here
