New books for Health Sciences Library


The Library's collection of e-books is growing all the time.

Benefits of e-books include:

  • Instant/anytime access
  • They can be downloaded (for a specified period of time) or read online
  • The entire text is searchable and 'sticky notes' can be added
  • A percentage of the publication can be printed/saved
  • The e-book URL is permanent so you go back to a publication instantly

Print Books

While many resources are now available online there will still be some items that are only/also available in print form.   The majority of the print Dentistry resources can be found in the Health Sciences Library located opposite Dunedin Hospital in the Sayers Building, or can be recalled from our Storage facility in Leith Street.
