LibrarySkills@UCL: Library skills essentials

A guide to foundation principles which are essential to building skills in all areas of information literacy and library skills.

Books and e-books

Books are important sources for established information or building on research published in journals.

Electronic books, or e-books, are usually electronic versions of printed books, although they sometimes contain additional or more up-to-date content. Occasionally e-books exist where there is no printed version.

If you cannot find what you are looking for at UCL, you have the option of requesting purchase of the book, using other libraries or requesting through our inter-lending and document supply service.
