Books and e-books

UCL Explore is the best place to find books, journals and other materials, either in print or in electronic format.

How can you tell if a book is available online?

On UCL Explore, you can look at the results of your search to quickly discover if a book is available in print or/and online: View Online means that the book is available electronically, while Available means that the book is available in print. In some cases a book is available both in print and online.

You can also access all the other UCL libraries with your UCL card but please check the library's webpage for the latest service updates and opening hours.
