The library has subscribed to Taylor and Francis eBooks (accessable with your library password through the library’s databases site). This database includes ebooks from Routledge and a collection of over 2,000 full-text books on language and literature. As well
as many works on the ‘big names’ such as Shakespeare and Chaucer, there are treatments of recent writers who appear on the English syllabus and there are useful resources relevant to all the courses I teach. The site gives access to anthologies of primary texts, works on critical theory and reference works (for example, The Spenser Encyclopedia and The Dante Encyclopedia are both available). You can download the books in pdf and read them on your device. If that isn’t enough inducement for you to try the site out, you will surely not pass up the chance to read my Representations of Eve in Antiquity and the English Middle Ages which is a real page turner.
