The Bodleian Libraries has over 624,000 e-books, with titles in all subject areas, but do you feel confident in finding and using them? If you haven’t got to grips with e-books yet, or if you are using them but are not sure that you’re making the most of their full functionality, why not come along to our workshop on E-books, on Wednesday 1 June.  The workshop will cover finding e-books and how to use and manipulate them, including borrowing entire e-books, downloading chapters, using e-books on computers, tablets and other devices and making annotations.

The e-books workshop will be followed by a session on E-book readers, which looks at the different devices available for reading e-books including Kindle, Nook and the use of iPad and Android tablets as e-readers. The presentation will cover the pros and cons of each device and give you the opportunity to handle the hardware and try it out.
