‌The Library provides both a physical and virtual book collection. In addition to the books available to you in the LU Ghana Library, there are also thousands of titles available as eBooks. 

OneSearch will help you discover all of the titles in our collection.

For some research, it may be useful to search a more specific collection of eBooks, rather than OneSearch. Here are all of the eBook collections available to Lancaster University Students.
