E-books

Therefore, the user rights, ways of using, loan periods and e-book readers required vary. For example, whereas some e-books can be read by multiple users at the same time, some can be read only by one person at a time.

Single e-books and links to them can best be found via Janet. You can also browse e-books according to science.
