VLeBooks then shows you eBooks relating to your search words. If we have purchased an eBook from VLeBooks, it offers you icons that help you to read the eBook (screenshot below).

  • Select the Read Online icon to open the eBook.
  • Select the Download icon to download the eBook to read offline.
  • Select the Bookshelf icon to add the book to your bookshelf to read online or download at another time.

Please note: Not all books are available to download. Some publishers do not allow downloading of their titles and eBooks in heavy demand are read online only.

If the Library does not own the eBook on VLeBooks, it offers you a preview icon (screenshot below). You are able to preview the eBook but you cannot read it as we do not own it. Always check the Library catalogue. As we buy eBooks from many suppliers, we may have a copy from another supplier.
