Resource of the Month – eBooks


This month’s resource looks at eBooks and how you can access those resources from the comfort of your own home; saving you time and meaning you won’t have to carry heavy books around with you!

Accessing eBooks couldn’t be simpler. Having an Open Athens account will allow you access to a variety of sources that provide Electronic Books for the NHS.

Access the eBooks search bar on the SWIMS site to discover the hundreds of  electronic books we have available to you.

For those who wish to have a step by step guide a useful version can be downloaded here:
