Animation Guide: Books & eBooks

Finding eBooks

We have a large number of eBooks for students, staff and researchers. The main way to search for resources is by using the search engine Discover. However, occasionally you will require more specialist resources for your studies, particularly if you are researching for Final Year Projects and Dissertation.

Inter library loans

If the item you are searching for is unavailable at LIT Library, try our inter library loans service. We may be able to borrow the books or journal articles that you want from another library for you. Request forms are available online or at the library desk.
